The Haunted History of Halloween

1997 NR

This exploration of one of America's most popular holidays, Halloween, is truly a treat for history buffs. Pagan in origin, October 31 festivities have been observed for centuries, celebrating mystery, chaos and the zone between life and death. Ghouls, ghosties, jack-o'-lanterns and, of course, the trick-or-treat tradition all get their due in this fiendishly fascinating look at the spookiest night of the year.
