I spent my teenage years in the company of serial killers, cannibals, vampires and witches. But enough about my family reunion (I kid, they were merely Mormons and sheep farmers). This week is Halloween, so I must confess — and share — a love of the scariest movies and books.
The tale of “Balloon Boy” is increasingly bizarre–a missing kid, a runaway homemade helium-filled balloon, accusations of a hoax, all from this twister-chasing family featured on “Wife Swap.” Oh, and Mr. and Mrs. Balloon Boy claim to be descended from aliens.
