Indeed a worthy start to anthologies. We need a host, but not just any host. One particularly sticks with us as years go by, it’s how we remember those shows. And in this case, our host shares the stories from those who have moved on.



A prisoner, now awaiting his release. He explained five Halloweens back, he was chatting with his former partner. Not realizing that his partner is about to test his humanity of science, and he has a 50/50 chance to live or die.

Sample page from Tales for a HalloweeNight Volume One.


Four people trying to brave a trip to Hawaii, according to the Groundscreeper it could have been to soon or way late. Either way, this trip would be the last of some. Dehydrated, no way to signal for any help. It seems this Sea Creature will have it’s way without getting caught.


What would be a hell of a time digging in the rain, it seems dirty work comes at any cost. Bunny aka Desmond of the story, wanted somethings done however, didn’t mention what was really buried within the grave. It seems like all things are found inside of a hole, waiting for tricks to pull those down below.


A man meets another man at a fast food little restaurant, trying to talk about this incident that went down. During the conversation, the man is interrupted as another customer walks in and can’t decide on what to order. But beware of the past coming back to bite you as you’re trying to order.


Possession is no laughing matter, we can get demons to attach to us by almost anything bad, tragic or worse. Like this guy Dennis, he’s trying to commit suicide. Until realizing he’ll have to fight off his personal demons until they gotten a new place to hide.


They always say never take anything home with you, you never know what’s not or is cursed. In this final tale Amanda will realize just how unlucky she really is, maybe she should have just let things run their course without stealing from the dead.


Lots of great artwork, stories and well made colors. Give the first Volume of HalloweeNight Tales it’s own anthology, if networks found these kind of stories haunting. Maybe we could see an actual TV show, I mean who knows. This Halloween make sure you have the right stories and scares before turning off your lights. Because anything can happen once things go bump in the night.
