Halloween is a festive holiday that is around a thousand years old. It is believed that on this day, the departed souls return to their homes. That is why the homes are decorated, and everyone is dressed up. Families lit bonfires to ward off the spirits. Witches, goblins, and ghosts are associated with this day and festival.

People dress up in costumes that have a spooky nature, such as vampires, witches, mummies, zombies, etc. An American tradition followed on Halloween is the 'Trick or Treating,' where the kids dress up and enjoy on the roads—going door to door and asking for candies. To learn more about horror effects for your videos or Halloween spooky videos, stay with us.
