Someone call Ghostbusters. This Italian restaurant is crawling with ghosts

  Someone call Ghostbusters. This Italian restaurant is crawling with ghosts An unassuming Italian restaurant in Pennsylvania has a ghost problem. So bad, in fact, that the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man lumbered down from New York to claim it as his castle. © Angelo's II An Italian restaurant in Pennsylvania is responsible for this spooky and spectacular Halloween decoration. Could this be a job for the Ghostbusters? Fooled ya. These "ghosts" are merely a Halloween costume for Angelo's II, an Italian restaurant in the small town of Monongahela south of Pittsburgh. They sure look spooky, though. Spindly green tentacles from an unseen monster spill out of its windows, scaring spaghetti-slurpers inside.

Stephen King is getting on in years, and he spends a good chunk of his time with his wife in their Florida mansion, so he’s going to do what any reasonable person would do with their other mansion and turn it into a museum. According to Rolling Stone, King’s home in Bangor, Maine (the town that inspired Derry from It, among what we can assume or some other, less iconic claims to fame), has gotten unanimous approval from the city council to be rezoned as a non-profit so it can be turned into an archive of King’s work and a writer’s retreat for people who want to write their own stories about scary clowns, haunted hotels, and sci-fi/fantasy cowboys roaming a post-apocalyptic planet in hopes of killing an evil wizard.

Google is bringing some ‘spooky sounds’ to Nest Hello, just in time for Halloween

  Google is bringing some ‘spooky sounds’ to Nest Hello, just in time for Halloween I have some fond memories of trick-or-treating as a kid every Halloween like I'm sure we all do -- one of those great holiday traditions when your life is still hopefully pretty innocent and mostly stress-free, and you can roam the neighborhood dressed up and knocking on doors asking for candy. Besides the fun of racing home and dumping it all out to check out the totality of your haul, one of the other fun things I remember is the extent to which some neighbors would go all-out, adding scary decorations outside and maybe even greeting you when you got to the door with spooky sound effects.

The idea is for the house—which looks fairly normal beyond its ornate bat and spiderweb-covered gate—to retain some kind of purpose and not become a simple tourist attraction, and you’ll need approval to go dig through King’s stuff once it actually opens. Rolling Stone says one of the city council members pointed out that King has “donated literally millions of dollars to various causes in the community,” so creating a permanent institution to his legacy “is important” to Bangor.

Anyway, here’s a free idea for King or one of the writers who gets to stay at his house: A struggling horror novelist attends a retreat at an old home of a celebrated horror novelist who died under mysterious circumstances, at which point they start having very vivid nightmares that they use to make their stories really good—until the stories start coming true or whatever!
