Did you know that the earliest Jack-O-Lanterns were actually turnips?
Or that the love affair between horror and Hallowe’en is a recent invention?
Or that the cult classic 1978 film that made masked killer Michael Myers into a legend of horror was originally called The Babysitter Murders?
On this special edition of the Great Lakes Horror Company (“where we believe every day is Hallowe’en”), HWA President, author and Hallowe’en expert Lisa Morton speaks about her areas of expertise with host Andrew Robertson. Topics include haunted ships, StokerCon, the history of the jack-o-lantern, destructive fairies, the origins of trick or treating, the official HWA podcast and the future of horror.
