Things to do this weekend: Halloween on the Hill & All Souls Day at Dempsey, Halloweenie, and more
Weekend’s creeping up
It's been quite a while since Phase 2 was introduced — and so, more and more of our favourite eateries, bars, and attractions have opened up their doors to customers. With that being said, bigger events still remain on hold. Not to fret though. This week, send thrills down your spine with a plethora of creepy activities to celebrate Halloween.
HORROR | Halloween on the Hill & All Souls Day at Dempsey
Embark on a blood-curdling tour this Hallow's Eve filled with eerie hair-raising activities. Follow a guide and a clairvoyant through a walking tour of Dempsey Hill's heritage, before stopping for wine and cheese. After you've lined your stomach and mustered up your courage, enter the other realm with true stories, and get the chilling opportunity to communicate with other 'inhabitants' in the area through intuitive senses as well as traditional and modern mediumship tools that includes copper dowsing (or divining) rods, pendulums and an electromagnetic field (EMF) detector. This one's truly for the brave.
Happening on 30 October and 1 November. Click through for your spooky tour.
FILM | Halloweenie
Halloween calls for nerve-racking horror movies – even more so this year as most large-scale physical Halloween parties and celebrations have been called off. Grab your spooky popcorns and head to The Projector's annual horror-fueled screamfest. Catch limited screenings at the cinema ranging from comedy cult flicks starring Taika Waititi to local horror romance film Konpaku, or stay at home and rent a spooky film noir to watch with your friends over Zoom.
