Welcome back aboard the Lighttrain and Happy Halloween! I’m your conductor; On this very special night I’ve written a bonus retrospective for the occasion.

Thirty One days of chilling anticipation for a this beloved holiday. And therefore, to tie up this month long marathon of goodies, let’s get this show on the road and go back… to Monstervision!

Later.

It slowly creeps its hand down it’s torn open chest, taking out each organ one by one. As the creature slips away from life, the intestines start to slink. To crawl. Away into the fern it squirms, thirsty for vengeance…
