Happy Halloween from CFS!

At this spooky time of year, many people are carving pumpkins, attending Halloween fancy dress parties and taking their kids to the houses of unsuspecting neighbours demanding sweets.

Perhaps you have been getting in the haunting spirit by watching your favourite horror films (maybe from behind the sofa? - personally I prefer a blanket for protection), and wondering how they make those effects so scary?
Asylum has compiled a great guide to special effects and how they are produced.
