Scary, I don't think so.
Instead I love this time of year when I'm introduced to spooky joys that sneak into the psyche and linger, playing malevolently with my mind. Throughout my childhood I was terrified by Rabbie Burn's Tam O'Shanter as discussed previously. You can listen to Brian Cox read it here, I won't be (fearty!)
Some may find this to be pretty mediocre in terms of shock horror value but it makes me wickedly gleeful.
And then there is also this. I love being pointed in the direction of such gems at this time of the year.
Roll on the end of the month 'Weel done, Cutty Sark!'

Gathering her brows like gathering storm,
Nursing her wrath to keep it warm.
And there you go.)
