Killuminati - One of the haunted houses at Halloween Horror Nights 8 @ Universal Studios Singapore

Halloween - the scariest day of the year - will be upon us soon. 

Don't be a scaredy-cat and hide in your house. Come out and play with They Who Are Not Seen.

InCinemas recommends 5 fun and scary things to do this Halloween.

1. Halloween Horror Nights 8 @ Universal Studio Singapore

The main highlight of HHN8 has to be the Haunted Houses. 

One of them is based on the popular Netflix series 'Stranger Things'. 

The house features 12 distinctive rooms that feature the iconic scenes from the series.

Begin your journey in the Byers Home, then trek through the Upside Down, bend down to escape the Hawkins National Laboratory during a Demogorgon outbreak and finally watch Eleven use her supernatural powers to defeat the Demogorgon in Hawkins Middle School.

There is the back-by-popular-demand Zombie Laser Tag, where visitors have to shoot down zombies to stay alive!

There are simply too many to list. For more information, check out our previous article on Halloween Horror Nights 8

5. Museum of Horror @ Scape

The Museum of Horrors is back for its seventh run, this time featuring the story of a girl and her thirst for revenge!

An abused girl with leprosy was unfairly treated and murdered by her gold-digger mother. She comes back to haunt her mother’s new family as an act of revenge and anger. Possessing her mother, she kills off every single one of the family members, and finally forced her mother to commit suicide by hanging herself.

What to expect in the Museum of Horrors?

The Front Porch: Introduce yourself to the haunted house, and prepare yourself for what is to come.
Backyard: Why are there graves everywhere? Who’s this quiet gardener sweeping up leaves and body parts? Why is he alive?
Master Bedroom: Be careful as you pass this room by, you’ll never know what lies on the bed.
Bathroom: You may hear cries for help as you make your way through the bathroom, but it’s best to move on and not turn back.
Attic: What’s with that wailing? Why is there a noose?
Children’s Room: Beware as you walk through the toys scattered over the room, you do not want to be the next victim.
Basement: This is your only chance to escape via the basement. Make it quick!

The Museum of Horrors VII: Vengeance is only open from 18 to 22 and 26 to 31 October 2017.

6. ACM After Dark 2018

ACM After Dark, the museum’s annual Halloween event, returns next Saturday with programmes and activities along this year’s themes of Tranquil Earth, Mysterious Water, Blazing Fire and Roaring Air.

Discover how the elements of Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire are linked to supernatural beliefs and ancient traditions. Be spooked by thrilling performances, a movie screening, paranormal talks, and fiery activities on this free family-friendly evening. Hear haunting tales by the river and make a souvenir to bring home. Unravel your special element in our spooky trail. Mystery prizes await the 3 best-dressed ghostly visitors!
ACM After Dark will be holding a 7:30pm outdoor screening of 'Kubo and the Two Strings' at ACM Green as well as an indoor screening of Korean horror film 'A Tale of Two Sisters' at 8pm at the Ngee Ann Auditorium. (Please note that there is an age restriction for the film 'A Tale of Two Sisters'. Visitors should check the rating at the museum on Saturday evening.)

To add an even more spooky atmosphere, there would be ghostly apparitions projected on to the front of the museum. The apparitions will range from ‘The Drowned Woman’ who swims and glides around the building, to the wind demon who appears as a glowing green skull.

The museum itself will also be transformed into a spooky jungle for a one-night-only extravaganza with ghosts and ghouls from Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and India roaming the grounds freely. Passage of hot coals, human barbecue pit, a water vortex, and a creepy well ala Japanese horror film The Ring can also be explored by visitors on that night.
