Trick or Treat
Carve out those pumpkins, dust off the witches hats and fill up the lolly bowls; Halloween 2015 is on its way!

There are a number of eerie events happening in Brisbane to celebrate this devilish day, and below is just a tantalising taste. Pick up your pitchforks and try one of these…

Sideshow, the Interactive Horror Experience
Ever wanted to know what it would be like to star in your very own horror film? Well, now you can!

Sideshow is a walk through, live theatre adventure that gives you control of the outcome. Interact with the characters, help solve puzzles and make storyline altering decisions and help lift the ancient gypsy's curse and keep Happy Clown happy, or else…

To add to the mystery, the details for the secret location are only sent to you with your ticket pack. Will it be an abandoned shopping centre or an old decrepit building? Wherever it is, there will be public transport available and it will be the perfect location to terrify you!

For more information, check out my other WN article or the Sideshow website.

Not suitable for people under 15 or for those with heart conditions… you've been warned!

Fright Nights at Movieworld
Movieworld's Fright Nights return this year, bigger and scarier than ever!

Every Friday and Saturday night from October 2nd through to October 31st , you are invited to "Live the Terror". Be brave and take your chances in the major drawcard experiences that have made this event so popular!

Mazes: This year's offerings include Friday the 13th, think you can outrun Jason? Wolf Creek 2: Have you got what it takes to go up against Mick Taylor? The Evil Within: Based on the video game, time to play in real life. Wyrmwood: Zombies in the outback, need I say more?

Precints: There are 4 new precincts within Movieworld this year that allow you to experience the horror outside of the mazes. This exciting new addition includes the cult hit 'Zombieland' plus more themed precincts to be announced soon.

Reel Horror Short Film Festival: "Create the Terror" is the tagline for this event. You are encouraged to direct and shoot your scariest work (up to 10 minutes long) and potentially take home a share of $6000 in cash and prizes!

Panic Rooms: All new panic room adventures will test your ability to work in a pressurised environment, solving clues and attempting to escape alive. Note: These are at an additional cost on top of entry fee.

Getting into the 'spirit' of the event by dressing up, is encouraged but make sure you read the rules beforehand.

Zombie Walk
Fancy walking around the city streets, dressed up like a zombie, with a horde of other zombies to raise money for charity? Well, November 1st is your lucky day!

The 10th anniversary of Zombie Walk, is back in the city and will be held at the Roma Street Parklands. With this year's theme 'Day of the Dead', it's time to celebrate all things undead?

Once you've limped your way around the crooked city circuit, it's time to dance like a thousand zombies are watching at the festival afterward. There will be live music and a DJ. There'll also be make up artists, markets, licensed area and plenty of 'finger foods'.

There are prizes for best dressed and the opportunity to get your make up professionally applied before heading off into the 'Splatter Tent' to complete your look!

Supporting the Brain Foundation of Australia, the Zombie Walk has raised over $100k for the charity. And you can help by attending the event (tickets are $20) or by donating, which you can do here via this kickstarter page

The event kicks off at 2pm, with the walk commencing at 5pm.

Halloween Express
