We tend to want our spooky stuff the most during Halloween but that's not to say it's the only time we can whet our taste for the macabre.
After all, you're likely to see just as many horror movies in January as you are in October. Granted, that's largely because horror movies are cheap to make and January has historically been the culture industry's dumping ground. Still, they wouldn't keep doing it if it didn't work.
And while we may have a lot to be scared about nowadays, there's an important difference between something that scares our imagination and that legitimately stresses us out.
So it's time to balance that out and bring ourselves back to the days when we thought there were monsters under our beds.
