Halloween is my favorite event of the year and, as many of my loyal readers know, my obsession with the strange and seemingly supernatural wonders of the microscopic world - namely horrifying parasites and bizarro infections - forms the very backbone of the Body Horrors blog. So in celebration of All Hallows' Eve, a night of masquerade and devilry, I present a small selection - no easy task, trust me! - of the more sinister and spine-tingling articles from the Body Horrors archives, a reminder that the spooky and scary is not relegated to just one day in October. Enjoy the tricks and treats!
