The night will be filled with goblins and fairies knocking at the door and asking for candy, but here is a list of other places that are a bit scary in real life.
There's the Underpass Ghost, Kenny Kingston's house, the stories that local celebrities tell, (see links below), and then there's the latest of the three shadowy figures crossing Ventura in the middle of the night near Reno Pizzeria at the site where three young people perished in a fiery crash a year ago.
