Catholic Halloween: the Horror Genre & the Four Last Things

A Catholic approach to all things spooky.

October 31, 2023  0

Is it acceptable for Catholics to take an interest in Halloween and horror stories? Halloween is a day that contemporary culture associates with ghosts, the paranormal and all things horror, but it has Christian roots as the vigil of All Saints' Day. Horror stories, meanwhile, have a long history going back to ancient times. Can spooky stories be used to teach moral lessons? In this episode of The Download, hosts Christine Niles, Trey Brock and Alex Karzon discuss horror stories, exorcism, the Four Last Things and the dangers of the occult.
