Check out the art exhibit “Shepard Fairey: On Our Hands”
The street-art auteur behind the "Andre Has A Posse" subway stickers and the Obama "Hope" poster makes his gallery debut with a show of new paintings—his first in New York in five years. His inimitable style and political messaging is on full display in the compositions featuring built up layers of collage on canvas that are meant to recall the look of flyers posted on a wall. Jacob Lewis Gallery, 521 West 26th St, 10am, free

Listen close at Night Terrors: An Evening Reading with the Horror Writers Association
Some of the city's finest horror writers will read their most chilling prose, ensuring you don't get a single good night's sleep until November. Between readings, test your knowledge of horror trivia with prizes at stake, and meet the disturbed minds behind your new favorite literature, including authors Marc L. Abbott, James Chambers and Tonya Hurley. Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424A Third Ave, Brooklyn, 7–10pm, $8Learn more here. 

Hold your breath at Rooftop Film Series: Halloween Flicks
Get the taste of bad remakes out of your mouth and enjoy delicious camp goodness (and popcorn) at this free screening of 1976's Carrie, presented by Space Ninety 8 and the Gorbals restaurant. Situate yourself on the roof for the most deranged prom night in history (spoiler: it doesn't end well for anybody). Grab a specialty cocktails based on the movie (hopefully nothing too red) and some free popcorn, and try not to root too hard for Carrie's mom. Rooftop Bar of Space Ninety 8, 98 N 6th St, Brooklyn, 8pm, freeYou can get more info here.
