I’m actually a little surprised that there wasn’t already a HALLOWEEN-themed pinball game. I’m talking about the film franchise, not the holiday. The former is so *over* (wrestling term; it’s a good thing, meaning having achieved a certain undeniable level of recognition and success) that a pinball game based thereupon would seem like a given. Well, the sad lack thereof has now been rectified. There is an official HALLOWEEN pinball game, and it’s as cool as you’d think it would be. Take a gander at this gorgeous gadget in action here. Man, that thing is beautiful. I want one.
