If you're a horror fan, your favourite time of year is no doubt Halloween, but the season seems to come and go in the blink of an eye every year. This year, horror streaming service Shudder are declaring '61 Days of Halloween' beginning on September 1st. Hey, if Christmas can start before Halloween, why can't Halloween begin in September?
