Every year we look forward to parties and celebrations associated with Halloween in Singapore. This year is no different even when the pandemic is still here; we have learnt to enjoy our lives in safe ways. By practising social distancing and safety protocols, we can now thrill ourselves by taking part in various Halloween activities.
It’s sad to know that the annual scare fare Halloween Horror Nights is not going to happen. However, places such as its ArtScience Museum, Universal Studios, and The Projector are coming up with alternative Halloween-themed events. Screening of scary movies and ghost tours can be expected this year to get you some hair-raising chills.
ArtScience Museum Singapore
The first horror film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, was released a hundred years back. To mark this special occasion, ArtScience on screen is changing into a spookfest by including several online and offline programmes starting from October 10th to November 6th. Revisiting the old and scary movie in its full glory at the ArtScience Museum will help you stay glued for the well-curated series of David Lynch’s short films. You can also check out the spooky virtual tour and witness some of the biggest past exhibitions by visiting the museum.
Universal Studios Singapore
If you are thinking about the closed gates of Halloween Horror Nights, don’t give yourself a chance to worry! Do you know why? The Minion Monsters Tricky Treats centre stage is back due to popular demand. Going on a trick-or-treat adventure around the park by completing free candles, chocolates, and gummies can be so exciting. You can also snap selfies with the characters from iconic movies like Despicable Me, Sesame Street, Universal Monsters, Shrek, and many more all in their best Halloween costumes.
The Projector brings its annual screamfest to its historic Golden Theatre, physical theatre, and also to its video streaming platform - The Projector Plus. Also, onsite screening of The Shadows will take place on October 23rd and 31st. If you are someone who has plans to turn your abode into a horror house, the best way is to tune into online exclusives - A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and Extra Ordinary. The former is the story of a skateboarding vampire who disrespects women and preys on men whereas the latter is the story of a driving instructor who uses his supernatural talents to save a girl from Satan.
You can experience face to face some of the scariest looking marine animals through glass by taking a plunge into the Deep BOO Sea of the S.E.A. Aquarium. The animals you would mostly see are the Japanese warbonnet and wolf eel. You can also engage in activities like treasure photo hunting to see the lost pearls hidden within the five habitats inside the aquarium. You will also get a great chance to get entangled in the tentacles of Kai the Kraken as you go deeper - snap a photo for keeps too!
