Just in time for the spookiness of Halloween, let's explore America's favorite fears: vampires, werewolves, and more! Leave Bram Stoker in the dust with a new favorite blood-sucker like Varney the Vampire, and learn whether silver bullets are your only hope against the wolfman. We'll be exploring ancient history, traditional folklore, as well as modern adaptations.

And sure, we can talk about Twilight a little bit.
