After the horror show of 2020, it’d be tempting to think nothing could terrify us humans as much as normal, everyday life any more. But then, you know: vampires, zombies, witches. Motherfriggin’ Dracula. There’s a heck of a lot of bone-chilling shit out there, and Halloween is here to remind us all about it. Great.
This year, trick-or-treating is a very much a no-go. Most street processions and demonstrations have been called off. Halloween-themed club nights – obviously not. All of which makes for an unusually quiet October 31, and means we’re going to have to find new and frightening ways to entertain ourselves as the big day nears.
Fortunately, our old pal and lockdown saviour the live-stream is here to help once more. From drag bingo to Shakespeare via some seriously gory slasher spoofs, we’ve rounded up the best virtual Halloween events and activities you can stream live this week. Just remember to dress up, yeah?
