Halloween & Horror | The Complete LTN Resource List

Halloween, often associated with ghouls, witches, and all things spooky, might seem an unlikely ally to the Christian faith. Yet, beneath the eerie masks and macabre decorations lies an intriguing potential for spiritual reflection and allegorical interpretation. Just as horror movies can serve as more than mere sources of fright, they can also be powerful tools for exploring deeper themes of faith, morality, and the eternal struggle between good and evil. In this paradoxical dance between the sacred and the sinister, Halloween and horror content provides a unique opportunity for Christians to find allegorical significance that speaks to their beliefs and the human condition itself. Here is a collections of articles and podcasts that discuss this topic and more.
