From the nation’s most frightening beer events, scary movies and terrifying TV – we’ve got you covered. Plus we’ve a special Halloween Beer Pick for you too, because we know you’ll be drinking!
Horrifying Halloween Happenings (USA) – With Halloween, falling on a Wednesday, October 31st this year, most of this season’s celebrations are in full swing this weekend…And here are some of the most fun and frightening places around the country to experience Halloween at its best…
The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (Weston, WV) – Having first opened its doors in 1864, this sprawling West Virginia asylum which was designed to house only 250 patients and reached a peak of more than 2400 inmates (many who died within its walls) closed in 1994. Now home to countless reports of paranormal activity, Halloween ghost tours are available for those fearless enough to take this decrepit compound on!
The Greenwich Village Halloween Parade (NYC) – Do we even have to explain?
Halloween San Francisco (Bay Area, CA) – Same goes here.
The Graveyards of New Orleans (Louisiana) – From its southern gothic vibe to its voodoo backwoods, there are few cities more truly haunted than New Orleans.
Salem Haunted Happenings (Salem MA) – Talk about embracing your past…Salem on Halloween never disappoints!
On The Big Screen – In addition to Halloween 2018 which opened to pretty decent reviews a few week back, there’s a hauntingly beautiful new movie opening this weekend that critics are loving. Canadian-shot and Austrian-funded, The Dark does for zombies what Let The Right One In did for vampires. Yes it might be a bit arty, but it’s also supposed to be terrifying.
TV Time & Streaming – The AMC network celebrates every Halloween season with Fearfest, a horror film marathon that runs frightening classics through October 31st. And Netflix recently debuted The Haunting of Hill House, a slow boil but ultimately effective remake of the classic 1959 novel by Shirley Jackson.
