There is something so creepy about Halloween before the 1980s'. Considering I was around before the 80s' I remember how spirited it was. If you look at vintage Halloween on Pinterest, you will find some of the most warped imagery and scary decor. Even the pumpkins are scary. The costumes were most frightening when handmade. That's not to say that costumes now are not terrifying. The make-up alone can be pretty incredible.
