AllMusic Review by

Sppoky sound effects recordings haven’t really changed much since the days of plastic 78’ and carbon black cassette tapes with the word “Halloween” hand stenciled in orange lettering on the cover. These modern horrors may be composed of zeroes and ones, waves, bytes, and compression algorithms, but they still sound like the same guy moaning into an old tape recorder in a storm. Columbia River Entertainment's Haunted Halloween includes 12 tracks where the wind howls, cats scream, and witches fly by with canned cackles. For quick reference, a description of each terrifying situation is inserted into each song title (“Monsters [Snarls, Mad Laughter, Thunder”], “The Coffin [Thunder, Creaks, Squeaks, Moans]”).
