Halloween: ‘Too much horror’

CHICAGO (Rooters agency) – “It’s too much. Halloween horror is supposed to be a joke. This is too real.” With these words, a national ad hoc coalition of parents groups, psychiatrists, psychologists, educators, and other concerned citizens has launched a call for an immediate ban on a new Halloween mask that it calls “beyond horrible.”

Speaking at the launch, psychologist Dr Joseph Blodge warned that children could be permanently traumatized from encounters with the mask. “Children don’t have enough experience or understanding to deal with a horror like this,” he said. “Indeed, even many adults would be terrified by it.”

However, a spokesperson for the National Alliance of Retailers said he thought the call for a ban was unnecessary. “I’ve done spot checks across the country about this mask. No one is buying it.”
