Curious how Halloween got started and what the significance of Halloween is?

It began about 2000 years ago in the British Isles with a people known as the Celts. On October 31, they celebrated the harvest and the beginning of their New Year.

They believed the spirits of the dead came back that night. It was a frightening time.

Purple Menace EyesWhen you speak to someone, you naturally look at their eyes. Make an impact with your costume this Halloween by dressing up your eyes with special effect contact lenses.

These contacts were inspired by the theatrical lenses used in the movies. If you have a favorite hero or villain with unusual eyes, there may be a similar contact lens offered.

Ghostbusters is one of the classic Halloween movies. And, it just got better.

It’s been updated to a digital format and will be appearing in theaters again this October but with a bit of a twist.

The horror of Halloween arrives September 23 at Universal Studios Hollywood. Experience being trapped in Alice Cooper’s Nightmare. Take a ride, perhaps your last, on the Scream 4 Your Life tram. Enter the Zombie tomb of 1000 corpses if you have the courage.

Watch the preview if you dare but make sure you have the lights.
