This night at the Collinsport Historical Society HQ might prove to be the most terrifying yet, for this is the night that the living will try to contact the dead. Specters will knock on doors and ring bells, extorting sugary gifts from the residents inside. This ritual might seem harmless enough to strangers, but I promise you: the tricks are very dangerous. If they visit and find your pantry barren of candy, vandalism is the best you can hope for. Several years back, Mrs. Merriweather, the assistant principal Collinsport Elementary, learned the hard way what happens when you try to pass off boxes of raisins to children on Halloween. As did her pet corgi, Raffles, god rest his soul.
To keep us company on this long and lonely night, I invited author Mark Voger to join us. He’s the author of a wonderful new book, Monster Mash, which explores the golden age of the monster kid (and devotes quite a bit of real estate to DARK SHADOWS). The music in this podcast is courtesy of Dickie Goodman, Hans Conried, Alice Pearce, and Vampire State Building.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
