If you love all things spooky, scary and/or skeleton-adjacent like we do here on Film In Dublin, then the month of October is basically your Christmas. And if your version of Halloween involves packing in as many scary movies as people during the month that’s in it, you’re spoiled for choice in the fair city of film over the next couple of weeks. There’s no shortage of alluring screenings to come from the likes of the Light House, the IFI and more. And as an extra little something-something, there’s a unique event coming to town for Halloween 2019 courtesy of a director who knows a thing or two about things that go bump in the night. Check out our guide to Halloween 2019 in the fair city of film.
The Light House Cinema have announced their season of horror classics for Halloween 2019 and it’s a great selection as always. From the atmospheric dread of The Shining and The Haunting to cheesy crowd-pleasers like Hocus Pocus and slashers Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer there’s plenty of selection to cater to every kind of film fan. A screening of 90s high school bodysnatcher story The Faculty is the kind of deep-cut we love to see, while cult curators Hollywood Babylon will be showing American Psycho and Grindhouse Dublin will have John Carpenter’s Lovecraft love letter In The Mouth of Madness on offer this month at the Smithfield cinema as well. Halloween season at the Light House runs from the 12 – 31st October and you can check out the full selection of screenings below. See here for booking info.
