There are some seriously scary movie screenings in the capital this Halloween

Fancy scaring the living wits out of yourself with a film this Halloween? There are plenty of special Halloween movie events going on all over London at the end of this month, from ‘The Blair Witch Project’ at the Union Chapel to a ‘Final Destination’ all-nighter at the BFI IMAX. Alice Cooper is even getting in on the action by introducing ‘Halloween’ on the South Bank. Maybe he’ll bring a snake.

  • BFI IMAX's All-Nighter

    Fri October 28, 11.45pm. £29.50/£18 concs, 1 Charlie Chaplin Walk, SE1 8XR

    The biggest screen in the land is staying open all night long for a marathon of all five death-related ‘Final Destination’ (pictured) films. Thankfully there’ll be a few short breaks in between (and coffee served), lest you fall asleep and never wake up again.

  • BFI Southbank

    Fri October 28, 6.30pm. £13, Belvedere Rd, SE1 8XT

    Who better to introduce a tranche of macabre cine fare than the original pantomime rocker Alice Cooper (pictured)? Prior to a screening of ‘Halloween’ (at 8.45pm), Cooper will be sharing his thoughts on films that have inspired him with the aid of a few B-movie clips. Better act quickly because we see this event selling out fast.

    What could be creepier than a movie in a church, where the spirits of the dead are probably still hanging out?

    They don’t come much more creepier than Hitchcock’s schizophrenic shocker, ‘Psycho’ (pictured). And where better to watch it than in a spooky old hotel? Bring mother along (preferably alive) and you can both get in for half price.
