We’re celebrating our 4th birthday here at P-Mag today. While I’ve been a part of Persephone from almost the beginning, my 31 Days of Halloween series didn’t start up until a year into our run, when I figured it was safe enough to ask the other editors to indulge my love of the weird, spooky, and creepy. 

Parties aren’t the safest of destinations in horror films — while you’d think there’d be safety in numbers, really, they’re just an excuse for the villain to have access to a number of nubile young bodies to dispatch in entertaining and appalling ways. If you discover you’re living in a horror fiction universe, seriously think about turning down your invitation to the next shindig, but be very careful not to insult the host when you do. You never know who the murderer is going to turn out to be.
