So, here's a proper medieval Halloween figure, the Green Knight. Not meant to be a horror story but have you heard it? A giant of a man, who basically comes up to Arthur and his court, calls them sissy pants, and asks if anyone would like to take an axe swing at his neck. Not without price though, the Green Knight gets to return the favor in one year. Normal people would be freaked out by someone who says "try to kill me, it'll be fun!". Worst of all, is that after King Arthur's nephew Sir Gawain steps up to the challenge beheading the Green Knight, the Green Knight calmly picks up his severed head, holds it in spooky fashion, and decrees, he'll see Gawain in a year. Creepy.
