Ghost and ghouls may be knocking on your front doors this October but if you’re seeking a few treats yourself head to your local cinema, chapel, or stable for a few cinematic delights that will have you white at the knuckles and shaking at the knees.

Ghost and ghouls may
be knocking on your front doors this October but if you’re seeking a few treats
yourself head to your local cinema, chapel, or stable for a few cinematic
delights that will have you white at the knuckles and shaking at the knees.

Our favourite pop-up cinema company returns for a few
special screenings this haunted season.
On the 30th and 31st of October Pop Up Screens will be bringing the
best in iconic horror to a Victorian stable block in south London for
Halloween. Try not to fall asleep as Freddie
Krueger
prowls his victim’s dreams in the first Nightmare on Elm Street on Tuesday the 30th, while the original
problem child returns for a special Halloween night screening in The Exorcist. Visitors are encouraged
to wrap up warm, but with an onsite bar and a thoroughly scary evening of
events don’t expect to notice the cold too much. Buy you tickets HERE

The BFI Southbank
will be honouring one of the scariest films of all time by hosting a special
Halloween preview of the rerelease of Stanley
Kubrick’s The Shining
(Main Picture). The special extended cut of the film includes 24
minutes of extra footage, with deleted scenes never officially shown in the UK.
The new edition will be on general release from November the 2nd and
you can book tickets for the BFI screening HERE

Southend on Sea
are fully embracing the holiday by encouraging visitors to come fancy dress to
their specially selected Halloween screenings. Hosted on Southend pier, Fright Night
will be showing mutation B movie Humanoids
from the Deep
on Friday the 26th of October and George A. Romero’s classic Dawn of the Dead on November the 2nd.

Mayhem Film Festival
is returning to Nottingham this October with the simple intention of scaring
the living daylights out of its visitors. This year one of Britain’s better new
directors Ben Wheatley will be
attendance to present his next grizzly instalment, after last year’s acclaimed Kill List, Sightseers, accompanied by writer Steve Oram. As well as a seasonal screening of The Shining, the
horror fest will host the European premiere of Steven Sheil’s Dead Mine, set deep underground in an abandoned
World War II Japanese bunker and, following this year’s medical theme, Ken Russell’s Altered States. For
Mayhem’s full programme and details of the festival, visit their site HERE

For a more authentic setting for your Halloween scares, Union Chapel will be bringing Mel Brooke’s Young Frankenstein to
their venue on Saturday the 27th. Chills in the Chapel is an annual affair and this year’s 1974
classic is a lighter offering but with live music and entertainment throughout
the evening there’s plenty to unsettle you. Grab you tickets HERE
