It’s almost time for all of the lucky children to gorge themselves on treats this Halloween season. Most towns around here are hosting trick or treat on October 30 from 6-8 pm, but Capitol Market and the Charleston Town Center Mall are having trick or treat tonight!!! Now is a good time to maximize your return on the money you shelled out for those lovely costumes and let the kids overdose on sugar. Continue Reading →
October is a special month for us at horrorfullife.com. This should come as no surprise. The leaves are changing, Halloween décor is proudly displayed, and horror movies are taking over the box office. Continue Reading →
