Halloween is upon us and you can fully expect to see a host of ghoulies, ghosties and altogether spooky shenanigans going on throughout the day. But let us not forget that scariest of darkened room dwellers, the ghastly geek. They often emerge from their grisly abodes at this time of year, moaning and a-groaning - mainly about JJ Abrams' overuse of lens flare effects on the Star Trek/Star Wars franchises.

They also light up the internet with their fine examples of tech-tastically carved pumpkins. And we have curated a mighty fine collection of their wares for you so that you can get in the mood for a spot of trick or treating tonight.

Games feature heavily, as do Apple and Star Wars (Abrams or not), but there are plenty of surprise carvings too. So sit back, pour yourself a glass of bat's blood (or Vimto as we like to call it) and enjoy this vast array of amazingly reshaped vegetables, including the superb USS Enterprise versus the Millennium Falcon by habitual pumpkin fiddler Alex Wer and the painted Angry Birds pumpkins we came across a couple of years back.

You can check them all out in our gallery above, just flick through for some classics.
