We all love spooky season. The time of chilling dread that creeps up from our toes and sends shivers down our spine. That time when we all eat way too much chocolate and fear to be alone…yes, we're talking about Valentines Day. It turns out that OTHER scary holiday, Halloween, also has some fascinating facts surrounding it.

For example, did you know that the vicious serial killer Ed Kemper was actually beloved by the local police? Kemper loved to hang out at the all local police haunts, where they would confess they had no idea who was brutally murdering all of the coeds in the town. He was so good at deflecting suspicion that he really had to work to convince his cop buddies he was the one responsible when he decided to confess.

It's nearly Halloween and you know what that means! Time for some ghastly facts that will give you nightmares…scroll down to interrupt a healthy sleep pattern!
