Maybe because people love The Walking Dead and movies like Human Centipede 2 (or because the apocalypse is near), blood, gore and wounds are super in for Halloween 2011. This runs counter to my Halloween costuming impulse: to dress like a nicely colored fruit, animal or idea. Brooklyn trio Selebrities are equally bad at being scary. Their soft take on kitsch classic "The Monster Mash" sounds like the music kittens would listen to at a sleepover. Eat a lot of candy tonight!
