Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Fun for Everyone may have just launched this year but the Halloween Horror Nights has been spooking folks yearly for the past several years. With five haunted houses, two scare zones and two killer shows featuring twisted clowns, vengeful ghosts, wicked doll, and a morbid metal procession, it is not for the faint-hearted. The highlight of this scare-fest is The Curse of the Naga, an original creation by the directors of Thai horror films, Shutter and 4bia.

With the guide of the Wayfinder, a self-guided walking tour, you’ll be able to unveil the rich history and heritage of the cemetery. And with the Bukit Brown Cemetery being one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in Singapore, it’s no wonder the place is rife with stories of hauntings.

Put your little ones to sleep before switching off the lights and pull out a line-up of classic horror films, like Hocus Pocus, The Silence of the Lambs, Rosemary’s Baby, Orphan, and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, to get in the spooky mood. Pop open a bottle of wine to company your movie marathon to add to the mood.

6. Indulge in Some Spine-Chilling Tales!
The internet is a great place where you can look for almost anything, from what to cook for dinner to finding out if penguins have knees (yes, they do), even spine-chilling tales, which is great especially if you don’t have the patience (or time) to sit through a whole novel.
