This strange little screensaver is set up for Halloween alone. The only option is to enable sound or not. When you start the screensaver you see a old 2 or 3 story house, with a couple of scrawny trees in front, a couple of gravestones, a grinning pumpkin next to the steps, and a couple of cement driveway posts.

There is a partial moon in the sky. By the way, the next thing that happened was a cat went by, and you might want to watch him at least once so you can adjust the sound for his scream. I didnít know, had it up too loud, and the dog and my husband almost killed themselves getting into the living room. My husband howled and the dog asked, "God was that the computer? Whats broke?" [or was it the other way around?] A ghost ooooos his way around the house, a fire appears on one of the driveway posts, the moon fades away and a storm blows up-lightening and all.

The lightening makes the lights in the house flicker. Bats screech by and disembodied green eyes blink by the side of the house. Things cycle back, the fire goes out, the moon comes back. Does it do anything else? Check it out and see!

This program also installs a free search toolbar for Internet Explorer.
