BreakingModern — Greetings ghouls and gals! It’s almost that time of year, so put on your costumes, light up your jack-o’-lanterns and break out the candy, because it’s time to watch some must-see Halloween videos.
Spooky Scary Skeletons
First, let’s set the mood with some spooky scary music starring the classic Spooky Scary Skeletons song by Andrew Gold. While definitely more kid-friendly than other Halloween songs, there’s just something about this song that tickles my funny bone. Pun intended.

If you’re looking for something a little more upbeat, a little more EDM, here’s the techno remix. Yes, you heard right. Spooky Scary Skeletons done dance-y and dubstep-y. When you’re at your Halloween rave or just rocking out alone, be sure to bust out some dance moves to this spooky song.

Jontron’s Halloween Review
Next, in the realm of video games and TV shows, Jontron’s got us covered with his Halloween review on Clock Tower and last year’s Halloween review on Goosebumps. Here, Jontron explores the horror of bad acting and laughable story lines. Prepare for Dan Scissor man, hairy people and skeletons with guns! I’m getting lightheaded already …

Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Here’s a classic. Remember Whose Line Is It Anyway? That hilarious improv show? Well technically it’s still on air, but I’m talking about the old days when Drew Carey hosted it and everyone had a solid laugh. I managed to salvage a gem from the past that’s all about Halloween, just for you. So expect witches, potions and cats as the Whose Line cast does what they do best.

Muhahahaha! *Thunder and Lightning*
Now we’re getting into the danger zone, because what kind of Halloween experience would it be without a few scares here and there? Viewer discretion is advised on this one for unhealthy amounts of creepy. You’ve been warned.
In preparation for Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 3, which comes out later in October, here’s the first two Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared videos. Yup, nothing wrong about a puppet show for kids. Oh, what’s that? I love creativity! And a song about time, too? Man this show delivers. Nothing creepy or disturbing here — wait, what’s that? OH GOODNESS!

Finally, no Halloween is complete without a scary story to listen to in the middle of the night. Since we’re already on the Internet, what better place to find these stories than Creepypasta? For those of you who don’t know, Creepypastas are short stories created by users for users. Since I’m all about videos (Reading? No, thanks), I found a YouTuber who reads Creepypastas on his channel. If you’re looking for a scare, definitely check him out. I personally recommend A Story to Scare My Son, Satellite Images and The Sandman.
Here’s The Sandman for your viewing pleasure. Happy hunting …

That’s all folks! I hope you’re as excited for Halloween as I am! I mean seriously, you dress up in costumes and get free candy, what’s not to like about that? Go out there, get a laugh or a scream and don’t forget to look behind you.
