MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS, Manhattan (WABC) -- There were spooky creatures and evil monsters hobbling down the aisle of the world's largest gothic cathedral on Friday night. A haunted bishop rose over the pulpit, a giant spider crawled down the walls and a dead violinist fiddled the night away.

St. John the Divine was in need of divine intervention with ghosts and goblins creeping through the pews.

"It's gothic, it's spooky - the pipe organ - it's haunting," said Christine Hutton.

It was the cathedral's Annual Halloween Extravaganza and a scary silent film played under the stained glass windows in front of the altar. There was also an endless parade of spooky and a procession of ghouls.

"This amazing space lends itself - one to great organ music, two to a great old silent film. And every cathedral has got to have some ghouls. So we like to bring ours right out in the front," said Programming Director Laura Bosley.
