Drew SintonHalloween is here so let's hit the town for some ghoulish fun.

There's something about Halloween night that heightens the senses and, perhaps, connects us more readily to forces unexplained.

So says ghost researcher Drew Sinton, from Melbourne's Haunted Bookshop.

"Halloween marks a time when the membrane between this world and the next is at its thinnest so it is a time to celebrate the dead,' he says.

Sinton, a Church of Satan member, says people celebrate Halloween in many weird and wonderful ways.

"For Satanists it can be a time to celebrate the dark lord," he says.

"Practising witches and those involved in witchcraft often celebrate by doing rituals. Spiritists tend to celebrate through seances and for others it is an excuse for partying."

What's On

MELBOURNE BIZARRE MUSIC FESTIVAL

The Halloween extravaganza will feature everything from live body piercing to sword swallowing, broken glass walking and rat traps.

More than 30 bands will play during the two-day event with a mock funeral, carnival atmosphere and wake turning Melbourne's CBD into the ultimate sideshow.

WHERE: CBD/Deviate nightclub, 14 McKillop St, Melbourne.
WHEN: Saturday, November 1 and Sunday, November 2.
CONTACT: Melbourne's Haunted Bookshop, 9670 2585.
