Why We Love Scary Stuff

Why We Love Scary Stuff

An attacker comes at you in your own home, instead of going out the front door you choose to run upstairs and secure yourself in a bathroom with a lock that a small child could break. Before you know it a knife (if you're in the city), axe (if you're in the country), or smoke (if you're in a vamp movie) comes through the door. Why do we love watching scary movies? What is it about Halloween that gets our juices going?

Unusual Beers to Look Out for at the Whistler Village Beer Festival

It's looking like it's going to be a barmy few days for the Whistler Village Beer Festival, with temps hovering at 24 degrees for the main event on Saturday - the perfect temperature to knock back some brews.
