All the Gods in the Sky screening at Rich Mix

6pm, 16 October 2018

Halloween weekend wouldn’t be complete without a horror movie and spilling pop-corn all over yourself out of fear. If you feel up for it, you should come and see this extremely perverse and scary movie at Rich Mix.

Synopsis: 30-year-old factory worker Simon lives on a decrepit farm in the remote French countryside. He is devoting his life to caring for his sister Estelle, who was left severely disabled when a childhood game went horribly wrong. Simon, living with guilt and depression is looking to otherworldly forces to escape the corporeal prisons in which they are both confined.

Expanded from his short film A Nearly Perfect Blue Sky, director Quarxx has crafted a visually breath-taking, emotionally challenging nightmare, filled with claustrophobic dread and horror. Yet beneath the brutal violence and mystifying surrealism lies a profound sense of sadness and unexpected empathy, making for a deeply disorienting experience.

Rich Mix. 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6LA

10pm-6am, 28 October 2018

Dance the deadly night away at this year’s Sundaze super Halloween party. The theme? ‘Club Kids’. For those in the dark, the Club Kids came to prominence in the late 80’s and early 90’s in NYC and was led by party starters Michael Alig and James St James. The group was notable for its member’s flamboyant behaviour, outrageous costumes and gender fluidity. James Priestley and Giles Smith will be spinning the mix along with other guests like DJ Slyngshot and Palms Trax. For the night, Oval space will transform into bolshy and weird, colourful and bright scene for a perfect Halloween session.

Family Halloween Night at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

One will be set up in front of Soanes Centre to warm you up and prepare you for a night full of Halloween adventures. After you’ve eaten all the marshmallows and hot chocolate prepared on an open fire, you will begin a guided safari walk to look for bats and other nocturnal beasts in the park. You will be able to learn about animals living in the park and experience a truly spooky evening walking next to the graves, listening to the sounds of bats hunting and other animals moving in the dark. The event is free for adults, but there is a £5 donation for each child to ensure the team can keep delivering their popular environmental education workshops. Don’t forget a costume!
