The ABCs of Halloween 2014 has a little of each. This year's 5-part Halloween series will offer all the sweetness of candy and the darkness of the night to help you get ready for All Hallows Eve.  Listen on WIOS throughout the days all Halloween week!

Can we use science to explain the paranormal? One man thinks so and he’s trying to find empirical evidence to understand what happens when people experience a haunting. He says if we can experience it, it must follow the law of physics. We’ll take you inside the S.P.I.R.I.T Lab.
Halloween. The Exorcist. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Psycho. Poltergeist. Why is it that just HEARING a song, movie clip or scary sound from one of those horror movies can incite fear in the bravest of us? We’ll take you inside the classics and how those fantasies shape our fears.
Tricking out your house for Halloween doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Just focus on the front door and the foyer, the spots where you’ll hand out candy or greet guests if you’re hosting a monster mash. Whether your fright-night style is ghoulishly glam, hard-core gory, or as friendly as Casper, we’ll have some bewitching ideas.
A sharp mind and a quick wit. If this sounds like you – you may want to gather your friends and test your puzzle solving skills in one of the various “Escape The Room” houses around the country. Find the hidden objects, figure out the clues and solve the puzzles to earn your freedom. If you don’t...you lose. We’ll take you inside the mystery...
Halloween isn’t just for the little kids. This year it falls on a Friday and we’re guessing quite a few adults are going to dress up and celebrate. So what’s hot this year? The classics are making a comeback as adults look to traditional themes like vampires or witches for costume inspiration, while pop culture and news makers are still a top source of inspiration. Whether you go all out or dress in subtlety, you don’t have to break the bank. Learn how to repurpose or shop thrifty to be the best dressed this All Hallows Eve...
