Scare tac­tics on fright night

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Competition -

I t ’ s Hal­loween and ghosts and ghouls acro s s Mon­k­lands are gath­er­ing to­gether for t o n i g h t ’s fright­en­ing fes­tiv­i­ties.

Trick or treaters will take to the streets of Air­drie and Coat­bridge in their creative and chill­ing cos­tumes.

Whether it’s Drac­ula and Frankenstein or Su­per­man and Won­der Woman, there are sure to be some un­fa­mil­iar faces roam­ing Mon­k­lands’ neigh­bour­hoods this even­ing.

At a time where the movie re­boot of Hal­loween is rid­ing high at the box of­fice on both sides of the At­lantic, it’s fair to say there are many peo­ple out there who en­joy a good scare.

But what are the things that ter­rify you the most? And what are your favourite el­e­ments of Hal­loween it­self?

Th­ese are ques­tions we posed to cus­tomers at the Quad­rant shop­ping cen­tre in Coat­bridge.

Mum San­dra Burke rev­e­la­tion that she’s freaked out by furry cus­tomers will have many peo­ple nod­ding in agree­ment as she told us: “I’m scared of rats.”

While Rosetta Bran­nen voiced a less common fear, say­ing: “The thing I’m most scared of is bal­loons.”

Killer cos­tume Hope­fully Michael My­ers will give Mon­k­lands streets a miss
