Harry Powell Halloween Costume
Powell is a self-proclaimed traveling preacher who is also a con man and serial killer. He tattooed "LOVE" on the knuckles of one hand and "HATE" on the other, using his fingers to convey this fact to his victims in a sermon about the eternal struggle between good and evil. By spreading the gospel up and down the Ohio River in the late 1920s and early 1930s, he won the trust of wealthy widows, married them, and then killed them for their money. Driven by a fanatical hatred of women and sex, she believes she is doing God's work. He travels along the river through the West Virginia and Ohio countryside, leaving behind a string of murdered women, until he is arrested in Parkersburg for grand theft auto and sent to the state prison in Moundsville.
