Draw your fangs, cut a couple of holes in a sheet and tighten your neck screws, it’s only Halloween again. The big screens of London will be bursting with ghoulish delights this October, and FilmJuice is here picking out the best of gory crop for your consideration.

Draw your fangs, cut a couple of holes in a sheet and tighten your neck screws, it’s only Halloween again. The big screens of London will be bursting with ghoulish delights this October, and FilmJuice is here picking out the best of gory crop for your consideration.

Like your scares in inescapable proportions? IMAX is the place for you and the BFI are getting into the spirit of things by putting on an all night marathon of the gloriously violent Final Destination franchise, as well as a screening Ghostbusters for those who like a little humour in their horror. Tickets and times can be found here.

Carry on along to BFI Southbank and you’ll find Alice Cooper prowling the black carpet in the midst of his Halloween Night of Fear UK tour. The genre fanatic will be spending the evening of the 28th discussing his passion for horror and how film shaped his career and his life, punctuated with handpicked clips of favourite movies and Q&As with some promising guests. Drawing a chilling conclusion with a screening of John Carpenter’s Halloween, this is an evening designed for fans by a fan, and Cooper’s tour will be pinging across Bristol, Sheffield, Manchester and Glasgow in the week building up to Halloween. More information can be found here.

Union Chapel is sending temperatures plummeting with its annual Chills at the Chapel. The eerie location in Islington will be showing budget scare flick Blair Witch Project (Saturday 29th October) and vintage sci fi terror in Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Sunday 30th.) Admission is free, head here to apply for tickets.

A similar affair is going down at Hackney’s Round Chapel, where afterdark films like The Omen, The Exorcist and Halloween will be providing good old frights for audiences in East London. The films will be screened on the 29th, 30th and 31st of October, with further information at the venue’s site.

If sheer disgust, mutilation and shock, shock, shock are your bag this Halloween then the only place you will want to be is at the UK premiere of The Human Centipede 2 in Leicester Square on Saturday the 29th. Fresh after the lift of the film’s headlining making ban by the BBFC, this proudly sick sequel to the 2009 original is guaranteed to make you squirm. The film will be presented by Fright Fest as part of a gruesome all nighter, details of which can be found here.

For a more rounded cinematic experience, the Cinema Museum has food and film and a little after tour of the Victorian venue which will be bound to get you rattled. Fancy dress is essential for the evening (October 28th,) which holds a quiz and mystery movie. Tickets are available from here.

Strong guts are required if you’re heading to London Bridge Halloween weekend. The landmark will be housing its very own human centipede as it pays homage to the experimental shocker as the film is screened in a replica of Dr Heiters laboratory amongst the London Tombs. The horror starts from seven every day over the last weekend of October, with full details on the official website.
