It’s that time again: the final few days of the month where my daily trawling of the social video ocean finally pays off.
Personally I’m hoping for nothing but wall-to-wall Halloween themed Vines this month, being as it’s not only my favourite time of the year but also because I’ve been saving some really good puns for this occasion.
Will my prayers be answered? Will Halloween be overlooked for other less spooky events? When will you begin to question the artifice of me writing this introduction as if I haven’t already begun looking yet?
Two of these questions will be answered (at most) in the following round-up…
Introducing this year’s most terrifying horror movie monster: Slidey Face.

Fantastic work here, using Vine to promote a good cause, with an unbroken looping animation that explains the process in simple visual language.
