Perhaps you're [[ImAHumanitarian first on the menu for the bake sale]], maybe you're the winner of a LotteryOfDoom, or maybe--and this one's popular--you're going to be [[HumanSacrifice sacrificed in a fertility ritual]]. [[BreadEggBreadedEggs Or all of them combined,]] with [[InThatOrder liberal arrangements of sequences.]] Either way, expect your impending [[ColdBloodedTorture horrible death]] to be offset by bunting, may poles and dancing.

* In Robert [=McCammon=]'s short story, residents of a certain small town are all prosperous and successful. But a few days before Hallowe'en they receive a list from the Devil, requesting various treats from each house. A few of the treats are small pieces of their bodies, toes and the like. Refuse to provide them, and "He'll Come Knocking On Your Door".

** Also, the Mirocaw slum denizens' "inner festival" in Creator/ThomasLigotti's "The Last Feast Of Harlequin", which is a direct {{homage}} to the aforementioned. Possibly even more nightmarish, by dint of [[spoiler:involving the [[HumanSacrifice sacrifice of selected female townsfolk]]]], as well as being [[spoiler:[[RealAfterAll indisputably real]]]].
*** Semi-subverted by the main festival in the latter story; [[spoiler:their own "scary festival" is a frightened mimicry of the ''actual'' ritual]].

** Such enthusiasm in public executions was hardly limited to European and American cultures. This was especially true for high-profile criminals. It probably also served the government's interests to get as many people as possible to witness the repercussions of breaking the law.

* A town in ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'' accidentally causes one of these when they don't realize the pagan costume festival they're reviving is causing everyone to go insane (example: a man in a baby outfit reveals he's jealous of the attention his infant son gets from his wife and kills them both; a person with a RictusGrin mask makes sure everyone around him is ''smiling''...). Constantine and a friend figure out that loud Punk Rock can disrupt the effects [[spoiler: but are too late to prevent the entire town from being blown up, along with Constantine's friend.]]
