Have a spooktacular weekend!
If it feels a bit chilly lately, it's because Halloween is fast-approaching. Lots of Halloween-themed shindigs are popping up here and there, and choosing your itinerary can be quite a quandary.
Experience a Mexican-themed Halloween, learn how to write your own crime fiction, binge on thrillers and suspense films—end the month of October with a boom (see what I did there?) with these events:
Dia de Muertos
When: October 26, 7 pm to 12 midnight
Where: Ayala Museum, Greenbelt Park, Makati City
Ayala Museum’s "Midnight Museum" is back, and it is partnering with the Mexican Embassy to bring Dia de Muertos: Forgotten Souls, an ode to the Mexican celebration. Gather your friends, put on your best costume, and prepare for a night at the museum you won't forget. Aptly, there's also a Dia de Munchies for your Mexican food cravings!

In case you missed it, you can watch up to eight international horror flicks at the first-ever Sine-Sindak Horror Film Festival. Tickets are 99php each but if you're a sucker for scary movies (and sleepless nights won't bother you), then you can watch all day for only 199php. Would you dare?
