Here’s What to do this Halloween Weekend

Posted On October 27, 2020

The spookiest event of the year is nearly here! Halloween is usually one of the biggest party events in Malta and although this year partying is a no go, it does not mean that we can’t celebrate it in some way or another. There are many events taking place that follow the current guidelines and are guaranteed to get you into a freaky mood.

Thursday 29th – Halloween Selection: The Other Lamb

Spazju Kreattiv

Spazju Kreattiv Cinema is screening a selection of eerie films throughout this Halloween season. Here’s a hair-raising teaser showing on the 29th:

Deep in the woods, an all-female cult is presided over by a single man in this haunting folk horror from acclaimed director, Małgorzata Szumowska. Selah, a devoted young believer on the brink of maturity, finds her faith tested when dark visions begin to reveal the fates awaiting the women as they age. Szumowska’s English-language debut is eerily beautiful and stunningly crafted, imbued with cut-throat tension.

Saturday 31st – Halloween Selection: Carmilla

Spazju Kreattiv Cinema

Another Halloween film selected by Spazju Kreattiv is being screened on all Hallow’s Eve.

An atmospheric, coming-of-age love story steeped in eerie mystery; a reimagining of Sheridan La Fanu’s 19th century novella of the same name. 15-year-old Lara (Hannah Rae) lives with her father (Greg Wise) and her strict governess, Miss Fontaine (Jessica Raine), in total isolation and is struggling to find an outlet for her curiosity and burgeoning sexuality. When a carriage crash nearby brings a young girl into the family home to recuperate, Lara is enchanted by the eponymous Carmilla (Devrim Lingnau).

Hope this article has given you some fun ideas! Stay safe and enjoy Halloween!
