We sent out the same set of Halloween-related questions to a bunch of different musicians. All Halloween week we are posting their responses. Here are some spooky answers from Gary Numan.

What was the best Halloween costume you ever dressed up in and/or what was the best Halloween you ever had?

The British don't really go for Halloween the way you do here, unfortunately. It's so much more fun in the States. My group of friends did our best, though, and would always have a Halloween party. My best outfit was as a nightmare pirate captain, a bit like Jack Sparrow but without the good looks. My best Halloween was 2012. It was my first as a U.S. resident and we took the children from one street to another, hour after hour, trick-or-treating.

What was the worst Halloween costume you ever dressed up in and/or what was the worst Halloween you ever had?

The worst Halloween was 2011. I was living in the U.K. at that time and we spent the entire evening driving around trying to find houses that were dressed up for the children to visit. We actually had people slamming doors in their faces. It was very miserable.

What do you plan to dress up as for Halloween this year?

Well, I'm going to be playing a show in Florida with Nine Inch Nails on Halloween so I may not get the chance. But if I do, I might go for the pirate captain again. I still have the hat.

What have you always wanted to dress up as for Halloween but never had the guts and/or resources to pull off?

I've always fancied learning to walk on stilts and walking around the streets as an eight-foot-tall Frankenstein.

What's your favorite scary movie?

Any of the Paranormal Activity films, and I really loved Pan's Labyrinth.

What's your favorite spooky song?

"Tubular Bells," the theme from The Exorcist.
