ZOM ROM COM: Before Simon Pegg went to space in the new Star Trek (but after he was in "Spaced," lest we forget), he starred in the best romantic comedy about surviving a zombie apocalypse that's ever been made. Case in point, "Shaun of the Dead," and absolutely hilarious and sometimes sweet pastiche of the classical zombie movie. It's a perfect flick to get you in the Halloween mood without making you worry about someone jumping out of your closet with a butcher knife. GET IT: $6.49, Amazon.com
HAUNT THIS -- All through October, we're dedicated to bringing you a bit more creepy, icky, scary, or just plain weird items that will turn your normal cry of "Want This" into "Haunt This!"
