Halloween Candy is a Jack O’Lantern of a book. An anthology of horror fact and fiction, newly stuffed after a night of trick-or-treating with film critiques, short stories, haunted house reports, punditry, a screenplay, and an interview with Dark Shadows actor Jonathan Frid. Both new items and reprints from: Wicked Mystic, 100 Wicked Little Witch Stories, Horrors! 365 Scary Stories, Midnight Marquee, Horror, Sci-Fi Universe, and Filmfax. Writings dark and serious and whimsical, and all else that is horror.

Also included is the screenplay, Halloween Candy, which was honored with an American Film Institute reading (moderated by Robert Wise — The Haunting), was thrice-optioned, and nearly directed by Tom Savini. Plus a recounting of “the making of Halloween Candy.” Or rather, how the film almost got made … again and again and again. A behind-the-scenes look into the world of low-budget horror filmmaking.

Full of goodies Halloween Candy is like a candy container after an evening of trick-or-treating. It’s chock full of a variety of goodies, of varying sizes, shapes, and flavors. You name it, Halloween Candy has it: several short (short!) stories, numerous essays, an interview, a review, and a screenplay.
