Stages, Screens, and Screams

While it may be early in the season, if you have any energy left on the off days, here are some fun ways to try and enhance your Halloween season!


If you haven’t had a chance to check out “Annabelle” yet, there is still plenty of time as it hit theatres this past October 2nd. “Dracula Untold” flys onto the big stage (& IMAX) on October 9th. And rounding out the month, a movie about the timeless game, “Ouija,” starts moving on its own October 24th.


Make sure you set your DVR for some of the much-anticipated horror-themed TV shows of the seasons. Notably: American Horror Story: Freak Show, The Walking Dead, Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, and newcomer, The Strain.

Make sure you bring your broomstick and catch “Evil Dead: The Musical” at the Broadway Playhouse before October 12th.

Then, there is the always popular, “Nights of the Stripping Dead” at the Admiral Theatre, hosted October 29-31.

While we are missing Gwar on the scene, there are still a few that will attempt to fill the void. Tiesto comes to the Mid on October 11th. Chromeo stops at the Riv on the 17th, and the Rave on the 18th. Quite possibly the highlight of the month, Skrillex, spins at Navy Pier on the 18th. Iggy Azalea pops in the Rave on the 19th. Machine Head returns to the Rave on the 21st, followed by Flyleaf on the 22nd. For a little lighter, check out Bastille at the Aragon on the 21st. Rounding out the month, check out ICP and Mushroom Head at the Rave on the 27th.

While everyone has to attend at least one Halloween shindig, Madison’s infamous, “Freakfest” will be hosted Saturday, November 1st. This is a must-see!


The Blackhawks play their season opener on Thursday, October 9th. The home opener will be Saturday, October 11th. Go Hawks!


Regardless of where you scream at, keep checking Haunted House Chicago all season long for everything to make your holiday season the best yet!
