DENVER, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Examiner.com, the insider source for local, has brewed up some of the best Halloween content on the web from its 60,000-plus contributors. From where to find a haunted house, to Halloween safety, or how to avoid a zombie attack, Examiner.com has spooky coverage across all 234 of its US markets.

"Examiners are always a great source for local information, but around Halloween their content really gets entertaining," said Suzie Austin, SVP of Examiner.com. "We have people profiling haunted places, giving guidance on how to make a homemade costume, and giving recipe tips on what to do with all of that leftover candy. One of the more lively areas of our Halloween coverage lies in the undead, as Zombie Examiners have taken off in terms of popularity. They provide information on zombie crawls, zombie burlesque, and even how to prepare for a real zombie apocalypse. All they write about are zombie related topics—it's remarkable how big this entertaining subculture has become."

Examiner.com has also partnered with MapQuest this year to make it even easier for locals to get their frightful fix. Using Mapquest's premier mapping software, users can find the haunted happenings closest to them, get directions, and read more info about the event on Examiner.com.
