Trick or treating? These seven firms can add some scare.

Americans are expected to dole out a total of $5.8 billion on Halloween, an increase of nearly a billion dollars over last year, according to the National Retail Federation. This represents a return to 2008’s Halloween spending levels and marks an opportunity for Halloween-themed businesses to wring some dollars from trick or treating before the scary season gives way to Christmas carols and gift-giving. Here's what seven 'scary' firms have to offer:

Not one to be outdone by the plethora of products available during Halloween, SpookyWorld in New England provides a service to get your scream on. In its 19th year, SpookyWorld has turned Halloween into a 22-day production that this year plans to scare about 70,000 visitors – even the most-experienced horror junkies – with seven haunted houses. Before co-owning the attraction, Michael Accomando started out as a horror film aficionado and movie collector in college, where he turned his dorm room into a make-shift store called “Mike-buster,” renting videos to neighbors and fellow students.
