A slight shudder slid over him, footsteps on his grave, a shadowy ghoul with its gargoyle grin threatening to exhume long-buried corpses.
The ghoul 's upper body split into two pieces with a cracking and splintering of bone.
There is absolutely positively and unequivocally zero news value in this ghoulishness .
Yes, I am talking about Hallowe'en, which is creeping ghoulishly closer and which seems to get bigger and scarier each year.
Witches, goblins, ghosts, ghouls and some gothic mums and dads were among an estimated 9,000 crowd that turned out for what is believed to be the country's largest Halloween party.
Simon, who will be dressed in authentic Victorian costume, will talk about heroes and villains, hauntings and murders, and phantoms and ghouls .
I'm not saying that we should not see these things, but are they now treated with a ghoulishness that belittles the losses that the images represent?
Ghosts, ghouls , and spirits floated about and chatted with old friends, vampires lurked frighteningly close, and werewolves paced from along the walls.
The undead come in all shapes and sizes, from regular old ghouls to nasty crimson zombies that brandish razor-sharp claws and run faster than the characters.
I see them as ghouls preying on the death and misery of other people to earn money and fame or convert others to their silly superstitions.
