Trial and Error

Your Post-Halloween Fix

November 1, 2007 9:36 AM

It’s been well-chronicled here on this blog that I am an admitted sissy.

But, first and foremost, I am here for you, faithful readers of Trial & Error.

And if that means I have to watch a scary video to provide you with the most fun, topical or interesting videos, then by golly, I will do my duty.

So for those of you who haven’t yet come down from your Halloween high, or for those of you still jacked up on Kit Kats and Snickers (by the way, whatever happened to Nutrageous bars? Did anyone score one last night? I didn’t), check out horror-centric digital network FearNet’s cool Halloween microsite.

There are some fun videos under the “America’s Scariest Home Haunts” section showing you what the Halloween faithful around the country have done to decorate their own homes in the spookiest fashion.

From a pure Trial & Error standpoint, the video quality is good, but sometimes there’s a lag time when you click on a new video. It feels as if it takes more than a few seconds to queue up the next video in the line-up.

From the Halloween section you can also link to FearNet’s regular channels such as its shorts, interviews, online series, and free films such as “Catacombs,” FearNet’s first original movie.

(OK, I am not that devoted. I am NOT going to watch a horror movie. You can do that on your own.)
