AllMusic Review by

The Columbia River Group's Halloween Party for Kids features ten “songs,” five “scary greetings,” five “sound effects,” and five “scary masterpieces,” the latter of which include things like Wagner's “Ride of the Valkyries” and Grieg's “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” The masterpieces, scary greetings, and sound effects are all solid, but the “songs” portion of the collection is atrocious. Silly keyboard-studio versions of party classics like “Monster Mash” and “Purple People Eater” are fine, but even the kids will know Michael Jackson had nothing to do with this Weather Channel-influenced, local forecast-ready version of “Thriller.”
