Throughout the world, people tend to plan their trips around the holidays. Yet, when it comes to Halloween, the trend is not so much one of getting away as hiding away. And is it any surprise? After all, this spine-chilling annual event is full of horrors, whether it's on the TV or the terrible costume choices on show at the office party.

This year however, we've decided to turn the tide, mixing travel and terror for a fright night with bite.
