skull_old_human_skull_black_and_white_vintage_antique_black_human-799847 (1)Call it Goth Christmas. Call it the happiest time of the year. Whatever you call it, Hallowe’en is a magical holiday. And, contrary to popular belief, it’s not just one day.

Hallowe’en is a season.

With so many amazing events celebrating the strange and spooky around this time of year, it can be hard to keep track! So we’ve put together a list of film festivals, conventions, and other horror-related gatherings happening all over North America!

Of course, we’re bound to have missed a few — if you know of an event that should be on the list, leave a comment with a link to the event or contact us on Twitter or Instagram: @aoas_xx!
