Citizens of Peoria, Arizona: Run, hide, take cover!

A 25-foot-tall, 350-pound orange jack-o'-lantern came unleashed today from the depths of Hell and barreled through traffic before meeting a quick death in a local park.

The giant monstrosity is owned by Big AZ Promotions. A representative from the company said strong winds must have caused straps holding the pumpkin down to break.

Right, Big AZ Promotions. If you say so.

You won't convince anyone that this enormous pumpkin wasn't filled with the spirit of 10,000 demonic creatures.

A message on Tumblr from a woman who has anorexia is still changing minds and hearts two years later.

Jessi Davin, a 26-year-old woman from Florida, wrote a post about the controversial "Anna Rexia" costume. She talked about the real effects of the disease on her body and mind.

To her, this costume isn't funny at all.

Davin's post gets re-shared thousands of times each Halloween when the "Anna Rexia" costume becomes popular again.

"I think costumes like ['Anna Rexia'] really show how much we as a society have to learn about mental illness and the way it affects the people around us," Davin told BuzzFeed News.

"People need to know that if you suffer from an eating disorder β€” you aren't a joke."

Here's your friendly reminder that you shouldn't wear blackface on Halloween (or ever.)

A 5th grade teacher at the Chestnut Grove Elementary School in Alabama apparently didn't get this memo. He dressed up as Kanye West, complete with "Kanye for Prez 2020" sign.

Heath Morrow's wife Shannon posted the photo on Facebook with the caption: "Haha some people thought Heath was really a black man."

She's probably not laughing now.

Although the original post has been deleted, nothing is gone forever once posted on the Internet.

Sadly, instances of blackface appear every year on Halloween. Most notably, actress Julianne Hough went in blackface as "Crazy Eyes" from Orange is The New Black in 2013.

Google wants to make sure you look super fly on Halloween night.

The company just released Frightgeist, an interactive map that plots the most popular Halloween costumes based on search terms across the country.

Check out the site and make sure your costume is original, like the delicate flower you are.

Here are the 10 most popular costumes nationally...

When you go to Target for one item, you'll end up leaving with a shopping cart full. That's just basic science.

But thanks to an actually delightful Halloween campaign from the store, you might just need two shopping carts on your next visit.

In a new campaign for Target's Halloween merchandise, the retailer takes viewers on an immersive, 360-degree video "choose your own adventure."

You just start at the video above, and follow the story from room to room in a haunted house.

In a world that's full of advertising, it's nice for a change of pace.

Just make sure to not block the entry way into the Dollar Spot, or some soccer moms could get violent.

This could either be really entertaining or really stupid. Probably both.

This Halloween Eve, psychic medium Chip Coffey and the reality stars of Ghost Asylum are going to try to cleanse the home in Missouri that inspired the 1971 film The Exorcist.

They are calling it Exorcism: Live!, which, despite the title, is not a musical.

Jodi Tovay, senior manager of development and production at Discovery Communications, sat down with People to give her thoughts on the upcoming show.

"This is the most dangerous night in television. When you're dealing with the spirit world, there are actual physical risks involved," she warns.

"It is not a hoax. This is a real story that happened and we are telling it. We want you to watch our show and prove us wrong. I dare you not to be scared."

Well, now you've convinced us! This is totally real and not a gimmick at all.

Spooky.

It seems like everything gets a "sexy" costume for Halloween nowadays.

You would think that after a sexy Donald Trump costume was made, the world would have reached peak sexy costume. But you'd be wrong.

Meet sexy Gandalf.

Tjitske Van Vark, an 18-year-old Australian high school student, posted photos of her amazing costume creation to Tumblr, and they blew up.

She wore the costume to school for "Muck Up Day," an Australian tradition where seniors pull pranks on the last day of school.

Tumblr even featured her photo on the front page.

Thank you, Tjitske. The Internet needed this.
