This man is literally a Halloween genius.

Oh my gosh! I officially am crowning him Jack the Pumpkin King from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

You'll understand why in a second.


HIs name is Michael Kane and he created a free Halloween-themed app called FrightMaps.

Here's what it is about. FrightMaps shows you every, "Halloween attraction, professional event, hayride, homegrown Halloween display and more," not only in New Jersey, but across the country according to

This part is my favorite because you can actually get involved!

"It also allows every home haunt," said Kane. "Every Halloween enthusiast can upload their house as well so that everybody can find their 12-foot skeletons, blow-ups and other Halloween decorations."


This means that you can download the app and literally be shown every single Halloween-themed activity at the Jersey Shore - both scary and family friendly.

Plus, there is something big coming on Halloween and it is candy related.

When Kane was asked if trick-or-treating is included in the app, he responded by saying a big surprise is on the way.

'We have a really great surprise that really nobody will know about until Halloween," Kane says according to "Every user that signs up basically ticks whether they're giving out candy or not. On October 31st, that math is going to go live and you can see all of the icons of 'candy corn houses' all over your neighborhood. It's going to be a really awesome experience."

Okay here's my prediction.
Maybe the map will show you where the most candy-lucrative houses are in your neighborhood? Oh my god, could you imagine?
Being lead to the houses filled with the most candy means I need to borrow someone's kid this Halloween so I can go trick or treating myself. Pretty please?
To Kane, my dude. You did it. This is the Ultimate Halloween App and now I have to go because my goal is to hit as many attractions as possible before Halloween.
Oh wait! One more thing before you go!

I doubt this is on FrightMaps but on Friday, October 28th, 2022, I will be hosting The Coors Light Annual Boo Bash at River Rock Restaurant & Marina Bar in Brick. There will be drink specials, a costume contest and the chance to win $25,000!
Then on Saturday, October 29th, I will be hosting Halloweenfest from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Freehold Raceway Mall. There will be arts and crafts with Color Me Mine, candy and I hear the Sanderson Sisters may be in town for a surprise performance!
Hope to see you at one or both of those!
