The Winchester boys never disappoint when it comes to delivering a spooky good time, but Supernatural's Halloween episode, "Mint Condition" (airing Nov. 1), finds the brothers living a real-life horror movie.

In the episode, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) must take on the monster of Dean's favorite slasher film, All Saint's Day — a fictional movie in the world of the show, yet reminiscent of the many real-world holiday-themed horror films. Having served as one of Dean's "nightmare heroes," Hatchet Man (Barry Nerling) will prove to be a challenging opponent for the brothers.
