Some samples of Martha Stewart's 'Spooky Scary Sounds for Halloween' ...

Ghoulishly tasteful, stylishly horrible

Martha Stewart Living:
Spooky Scary Sounds for Halloween
(Rhino Records)

(CNN) - Apparently there are scarier things in Martha Stewart's kitchen than overdone lamb chops.

Fresh, and just in time for this ghoulish holiday, comes "Martha Stewart Living: Spooky Scary Sounds for Halloween." No perfect Hallow's Eve is complete without it.

"Martha Stewart Living: Spooky Scary Sounds for Halloween" is a 40-minute collection of, well, spooky, scary sounds -- creaking doors, yowling cats, whipping winds. The collection's sound designer, Robert Montrone, did a nice job of creating a soundtrack that doesn't sound cliched or redundant.

In the proper setting -- not a raucous costume party, where music should be the rule -- the album could add the right amount of ambiance without being overbearing.

Baby pumpkins and Halloween
'Ghoulishly tasteful, stylishly horrible
France goes batty over Halloween
The scariest books of all time
Carving up a spooky Halloween
TV networks brew up spooky Halloween episodes
Don't sit around and molder this Halloween
A passion for pumpkin
Little shop around the coroner funds alternative sentencing program
 

Naturally, this release wouldn't be complete if the head hostess herself didn't offer a little something extra to her guests -- er, customers. In the "Martha Stewart Living: Spooky Scary Sounds for Halloween" booklet, the social engineer offers tips for a pumpkin-carving party, creating the perfect ghost-in-the-mirror effect and making perfect caramel apples.

OK, this collection doesn't have the camp factor of, say, "The Monster Mash," but it's not terrifyingly expensive ($9.98 for the CD, $5.99 for a cassette) and it is a fun accoutrement.

After all, what good is Halloween without the soundtrack?
