A Zombie isn't the only seasonally appropriate alcoholic drink you can serve for Halloween. Other tantalizing drink names include Alien Urine Sample, Brain Hemorrhage, Devil's Cocktail, Eat Hot Death, Gates of Hell, Headless Horseman, Instant Death, Nightmare, Porch Crawlers, Tarantula, and What the Hell.
In Italy, between the 14th and 16th centuries, people believed that wild music would counter the effect of a poisonous tarantula spider bite. The weary victim would dance in the desperate hope that the vigorous exercise would work off the poison. This music became the dance we know today as the tarantella.
"Now, that's entertainment!" - Vlad the Impaler
Now you too can create such a nice macabre atmosphere for your party. All your needs can be found, despite its bugs, on the web.
On the web you'll find animatronic spiders (lovely) or a full assortment of other life-sized animatronic figures such as a guy in an electric chair (heh, heh, heh) and others. You can find fog machines as well as a wide assortment of severed limbs including a head (delightful) or an ear (cute) or, alternatively, a squashed rat (The best kind) to grace your buffet table. This is assuming, of course, that you don't have time to garnish with the real thing. You can also find Halloween carols to sing around the warm glow of your jack-o-lantern and a brain-in-a-jar or alien-in-a-jar to adorn your mantle or coffee table. You can even find recommendations for alternative music to keep your sound effects tape from getting too tiresome. You can start by sending out personalized electronic postcards, as party invitations via email. Done right your party could be a horrible disaster.

The lobby of the Vampire State Building, in Howlywood, is a charming place that's just filled with atmosphere. It's haunted of course. Sometimes you'll swear you can see a little monster running by ardently pursued by its mummy and deady.
On weekends the air, in the lobby, is filled with music from a skeletal trom-bone quartet. The music is different, however, whenever there are a lot of mummies in town. Mummies, it seems, prefer wrap music (accursed creatures). Apparently they like its "edgy" quality because they're morbidly afraid of relaxing and unwinding.
The aroma of fresh baking emanating from the little off-lobby bakery is almost as seductive as the curvaceous Elvira-like attendant behind the counter who bats her eyes, and her wings, at you. She's half-vampire/half ghoul and, between you and me, she wears way too much mass-scare-a. She really wants to maintain her goulish figure, too, but just can't resist sucking, and then goblin, the jelly out of the jelly doughnuts. She can be a real pain in the neck. Nonetheless, whenever I run into a demon, I always try to take the time to introduce them. Demons, after all, are a ghoul's best friend.
You won't see any other vampires in the lobby during the day of course because, as you know, Vampires are like false teeth - they come out at night.
Suicide is the last thing you should do.
Death is nature's way of saying "Howdy."
