I don't, but may. The Halloween Gambit is likely not going to be played on a serious level due to it not being sound, but it certainly has its practical chances in a faster time control game, or even against an unsuspecting opponent.
Have some fun with it!

Can I get bashed in unrated? It is very tricky to convince anyone to four knights here.
Thanks for being such a positive influence in chess, ChessNetwork
Black can always bail from the tactics with the 5...Ng6 6.e5 Bb4 line, leaving white with nothing to get excited about.
I played 6...Nb8 once. It didn't go well.
sometimes i play , just for fun , the problem is that many times black doesn´t play 4 knight opening, because of that i prefer king´s gambit, white chooses what to play in the 2º move.
I played this opening in control 15/0 and 25/0 in live tournaments and i never lost. I played with people around 2000-2300 FIDE and during all the game you are enjoying and you opponent is seeing ghosts. In my humble opinion is the strongest psychological weapon in chess.
Play the halloween gambit thematic ! http://www.chess.com/tournament/halloween-gambit-thematic2
Maybe I play the metrosexual halloween gambit:
ng6 is ? the correct move for black is nc6 !this is an easy line to prepare for and play for the win as black ... ten minutes of study to learn the line and get =/+the key is black gives back the piece at the right moment and white has no more tricks to play and has an inferior position to boot
ng6 is ? the correct move for black is nc6 !
It's just another try for black, not specifically the "correct" try. There's even a sub-variant from Nc6 called the Pinksy variation, which uses Bb4.
I'll play it if I get pumpkin pie all I can eat. But just 1 game.
I played a match with it a few years ago. I ended up being lucky and won both games, but it wasn't because of the opening and I should have lost the rook endgame when I was black.
I think he played quite good with the white pieces until he played 39.d5
