Ooo! We Were Scary, Boys & Girls!

Above: See me in all my cadavrous monstrosity being brought involuntarily back to life by mad scientist Ed Sedarbaum as onlookers quake in horror.

What do North Adamsers do for ghoulish entertainment on the Saturday night before Halloween?

What Eddie and I did was travel to Sheep Hill in Williamstown, where we transformed ourselves, in the company of a raft of similarly demented townsfolk, into horrific beings designed to strike fear into the hearts of the innocents of all ages who showed up for the annual "Haunted Sheep Hill" Halloween festivities.

Yes, there were screams of terror, and many a heart was clutched in fright. And that’s as it should be, right? What’s the point of having thirty-one days in October if you don’t make the most of the month’s creepy denoument?

Were these children too young to witness evil unleashed?
