THE CORNER OF HARDCORE AVENUE AND LIGHT SHOW LANE — It's Halloween time and, even though things will be different this year than pretty much any other Halloween ever, there are a few things that are still alive and well. Your kids will still beg you for an overpriced costume, you'll still get a stomach ache from eating too much candy (even though you promised yourself this year would be different), and there are going to be Halloween light shows in neighborhoods all over the United States.
These light shows are always pretty cool, but what happens when you decide to take the show down a metal road? Black magic, that's what.
This house in California decided to take a risk on an out-of-the-box light show. They decided "Thriller" has been done too many times and "The Monster Mash" needed a break. So where do you go? A Disney villain song? "Somebody's Watching Me?" No, you buck the trend and create a metal-burbia paradise with Metallica's "Enter Sandman."
Enjoy some headbanging while your ears take in the Black Album classic and your eyes soak up the brilliant lights, all while your brain is trying to keep you from passing out from the intensity.
I have no light show, but I may blare this song all night long on Halloween to keep any would-be trick-or-treaters from coming to ask for candy — because I worked for that candy and I'm keeping it this year in my quarantined haunted house.
