There may be a global pandemic this year but Halloween film events are still happening - just in a different way. Inventive organisers have been finding fresh ways to ensure that you can get a proper scare this season without facing real danger.
If you're in the London area, Pop Up Screens is holding a Forbidden Forest Cinema experience from the 23rd until the 8th of November, with reduced capacity and extra sanitation. Films include A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Lost Boys, The Blair Witch Project, Labyrinth, Us, The Sixth Sense, Get Out, The Invisible Man, Halloween, Scream, The Craft, It, Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, The Shining, Hereditary, Joker, The Cabin In The Woods, The Goonies and Se7en.
Scotland's drive-in movies are more of a fly-in this year, based at Edinburgh Airport, which may be convenient for those arrive on broomsticks. They include Ghostbusters, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Lost Boys, Donnie Darko, Coco, ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, Jaws, Halloween, Hocus Pocus, Labyrinth, Jurassic Park and Scream. You can find out more here.
If you are staying in, don't forget that Frightfest has a second great batch of features for you to get your teeth stuck into.
