Halloween might look a little different this year, but it’s not all doom and gloom, and there’s still plenty of spooky fun to be had! Who said you can’t dress up when you’re in the house? Here at Princes Square we’ve got just what you need for a scary night in this Halloween, and if you’d still like to venture out of the house, our Everyman cinema is showing some truly spine-tingling films.
It’s spooky specials all day and night at Everyman Glasgow this Friday and Saturday! Whether you’re after some family-friendly frights or truly terrifying horror, there’s bound to be something to satisfy your Halloween hankerings. If you’re planning a spooky day out with the kids, Everyman are showing The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus and Beetle Juice across Friday and Saturday: true Halloween classics for the whole family. You’ll be spellbound and singing-along at this week’s House Party event, Rocky Horror Picture Show, showing on Friday at 8.30pm. Finally, if you’re brave enough, catch late-night showings of Alien, Halloween (RE:2020) and Train to Busan (for horror-buffs only!)
TRICKS AND (MOSTLY) TREATS
Make your Halloween sweets special this year with Hotel Chocolat’s brilliant Halloween collection. ‘Choose Your Poison’ is a collection of devilishly delicious filled chocolates, served in a reusable glass flask (use to serve your own creepy cocktails after finishing!) If you dare to dip, will you find a Haunting Hazelnut, Zombie Eye or Vampire Bite? A spooky scavenger hunt around the house might make up for a lack of trick or treating this year. ‘The Boo Box Duo’ contains cunning cats, monstrous mummies and ghoulish ghosts; perfect treats for the kids to find. If you’re after some boozy treats for your adults-only evening, look no further than ‘The Halloween Tipsy Truffles Sleekster.’ Featuring fine rums, warming whiskies and fruity liqueurs, this box will be the centrepiece of your Halloween night.
Pop into Essence of Harris and find the perfect scent to accompany your Halloween night. Their hand poured, scented soy wax candles and home fragrance products are sure to add to the Autumnal atmosphere in your home. Try the ‘Horgabost – Lemongrass & Ginger Glass Candle’ for the highly fragrant and refreshing scent of spicy root ginger. Or, if you’re someone who believes Halloween basically means it’s Christmas, go for the ‘Cranberry Christmas Reed Diffuser.’ Deliciously sweet cranberries, notes of citrus orange zest and the gentle spice of cinnamon are perfect for nights in.
