Aloe spp.

This is one of my green allies in full bloom! With just these images of the buds and blossoms, can you name the plant? 


Hint #1: I bring this plant indoors to overwinter. 
Hint #2: I consider this an essential plant for every home.
Hint ##: May be useful for Halloween costuming. 

It's an Aloe.

I don't understand so much about flowers, but is it a pumpkin flower?
Or a specie of Orchidaceae?
:D

I was searching about some herbs used in Haloween and I found this one: Scarlet Pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis).
I hope it's correct.

The very top of the flower sure looks like asparagus. But that doesn't have to be brought inside. I'm stumped! Do tell.....
