Halloween is just a few days away, and whether you're into tricks or treats, Denver has plenty of options, including cemetery crawls , an eight-acre corn maze , or dinner in a former mortuary . If you're up for a drive, it's not too late to get tickets to the annual Shining Ball  at The Stanley Hotel  in Estes Park.
Speaking of scary movies, the Mile High Horror Film Festival  recently hosted a weekend of fright nights at the Tivoli Theater, and it reminded us of Halloween slumber parties with Freddy Krueger , Jason , and Michael Myers . We even caught up with some of our favorite old-school horror stars at the festival. Here’s what some of them are up to:
Anthony Cecere 
Then: During his 30-year career as a Hollywood stunt man, Cecere worked on more than 90 films, including classics like Ghostbusters  and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre . His specialty was fire burns.
Now: Cecere retired from Hollywood and now travels the country in his RV. He recently spent two months in Alaska prospecting for gold.
Mark Patton  (pictured, with fan)
Then: Patton beat out Brad Pitt and Matt Damon for the role of Jesse in A Nightmare on Elm Street: 2 .
Now: Patton lives in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where he owns the art gallery Lalo Morales. He is an active philanthropist and uses his appearance fees to support The Trevor Project , a charity aimed at preventing suicides among gay youths.
Eileen Dietz 
Then: Dietz appeared in soap operas like General Hospital and Guiding Light, but she’s best known for her role as the evil demon in The Exorcist .
Now: Dietz is currently working on a book, Tales from the Set of The Exorcist: Exorcising my Demon, which she hopes will help aspiring actors.
