MUMBAI: It’s that time of the year when giving your nerves a jolt of terror feels like the right thing to do. It’s the time when the moon becomes a brute and black cats are seen.

It’s the time to trick-or-treat: it’s Halloween on Saturday, 31 October and sure enough English entertainment channels have turned up their horror quotient to spook viewers further.


Halloween is usually celebrated amongst family, friends and, sometimes, co-workers. However, some areas hold large community events. While some adults may celebrate by watching horror films or by holding costume parties or creating haunted houses or graveyards.
