Best Halloween film Screenings 2017

It’s the spookiest time of the year, so why not check out one of these fun Halloween movie nights. From Horrorwood classics to scary flicks with a twist, sit back, relax and let the ghoul times roll…

Notting Hill nightmare


Get set to celebrate Halloween movie night in style at the Notting Hill Arts Club with an intimate cinema screening of Hocus Pocus on 31 October. For £10 a ticket you’ll get a seat in the spookily-decorated venue, as well as some popcorn and either an alcoholic beverage or soft drink. The film begins at 8pm but doors open from 7pm, so make sure to arrive early to nab your preferred seats. Although the film is PG, this is an 18+ event.

Bloody beneath Bristol


Beneath Bristol’s bustling streets, you’ll find a lair of tunnels called Redcliffe Caves. Haunting and atmospheric, Bristol Film Festival is taking up residence here to screen 13 classic and contemporary horror movies. The film event named Horror In The Caves kicks off on 20 October with Pan’s Labyrinth and ends on 22 October with The Descent. Some films are sold out already so take a look on their website for availability.

Haunted castle


Strange things are afoot under Cardiff Castle, deep in the 15th-century stone-vaulted undercroft. This Halloween, take a trip to the castle’s eerie pop-up cinema and prepare to be spooked by the scary films on show. From Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride to Hocus Pocus, The Evil Dead, Ghostbusters and more, there’s loads to see at this blood-curdling event.

John Carpenter’s classic


Manor Gardens in Exmouth invites those who dare to a night of blood, gore, guts and horror. Sounds tempting, right? On Friday 27 October, an open-air cinema will be showing the classic 1978 horror film, Halloween. Bring a chair, some blankets and an umbrella (just in case) for a frightfully fun evening under the stars. Tickets cost £9, not including booking fee, and the film starts at 9:30pm. Feel free to bring food with you but any alcohol consumed will need to be purchased from the onsite bar.

Petrified in Portsmouth


The Portsmouth Film Society prides itself on showing the best in world cinema, from hard-hitting documentaries to independent films, old Hollywood classics and animated features. On Tuesday 31 October at 7pm, they’ll be screening Jordan Peele’s hit comedy-horror movie Get Out. If you missed its release in February, now’s your chance to see it again on the big screen. Please note, you do not have to be a member to attend the society’s screenings.
