Microsoft gives Bing a Halloween makeover with references to famous horror movies

Microsoft has launched a new Bing homepage to celebrate the Halloween festive season. Taking full advantage of the real estate, the company has produced an interactive scene inside a haunted house. Visitors are exposed to freakish sound affects that create a spooky atmosphere as you search the Internet. 

What's more is Bing is paying tribute to a number of well-known movies. We won't publish any spoilers here, but they're easy to spot should you know the references. Fan of the best horror movies produced? You'll love the new Bing homepage. Oh, did we mention that this beats Google's interactive animation?

How are you celebrating Halloween today? "Hereeeeeee's Ballmer!"

Check out the festive on the Bing homepage.
