Here’s the rest of the best of last year’s Halloween. Two or three houses collaborate — or is it compete? — on themed displays. As you scroll through the photos, admire how many mannequins they assembled, how many signs and t-shirts they created, and how much time (not to mention storage) they must spend. I kind of want to interview the homeowners to ask them how this all started, but with Halloween less than two weeks away, they’re probably frantically busy.

Last year’s theme was “Satan High.” One house had the quotidian activities of high school, including the science lab and the resultant visits to the nurse’s office.

Detention.

Detention and shop do not mix well.

And, of course, football.

Don’t mess with any of them. And that goes double-time for the band.

My money’s on the Devils.

Burning hot!

I can even forgive the misspelling, because “Clip Their Wings” is genius.

The house across the street focused on end of year activities such as the prom, complete with King and Queen and live music.

Nobody else stood a chance.

I love live music, but this band scares me, especially the drummer.

And graduation.

Go Team! No, really, go. Get the hell out.
