There's a new twist on Halloween trick-or-treating that appears to be growing in Minnesota. Similar to tailgating at sporting events, the family-friendly "trunk or treating" events are being adopted by a handful of communities and churches across the state.
Why do we eat up horror movies? They are the Jan Brady of Hollywood. They can never live up to the Marsha level hype of a “Schindler’s List” and they aren’t as cute as the Cindys, i.e “Finding Nemo.” Answer. We love to be scared. Also, they’re cheap to make.
