Our story: 13 terrifying Star Trek episodes worth beaming down for Halloween

Your best comment: Bit of trivia: Both "Wolf in the Fold" and "Catspaw" (the very overtly Halloween themed episode) were both written by horror author Robert Bloch, who wrote "Psycho" among other things. He also wrote another episode, "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" but that one was cruddy. — familyman99

Our story: 32 awesomely horrific album covers to rock your Halloween world

Our story: Image of the day: Who knows what women really want?

Your best comment: As a woman, I don't really want anybody calling and waking me up at 3 am. Unless it's an emergency, in which case, again, I hope nobody ever has to call me at 3 am.
But if a man called me in my waking hours and said, "hey, I love you, and we have to go save the world. Also, I have cookies and ice cream." -- sounds dreamy to me!
