Halloween may be a little, well, dead this year, but that doesn't mean you can't have a grand old time with a few of your favorite ghouls and gals. While you may not be able to bob for apples and scare the living daylights out of each other in person, you can have a spooktacular time by meeting up on Zoom. In fact, there are plenty of bone-chilling Zoom Halloween ideas that are so scary, so nefarious, and so downright terrifying that you'll forget all about how fun it is to go (and host) trick-or-treaters.
