‘Twas the night before Halloween and just like last year you are scrambling to find the finishing touches to your Princess Leia costume while texting everyone you know to find out where the party is this year. While we can’t help you track down that gold bikini we can direct you to some of the better (or at least more unique) events Toronto has to offer this year for All Hallows Eve on Friday October 31st.
I’ve read this event description three times and am still not totally sure what is being offered here but it seems like victorian surgery. Looks like you can get that tummy tuck and face lift for free if you go on Halloween. It also seems that children are welcome and that there will be a film viewing. My suggestion is to proceed with caution (and if it wasn’t super clear, we at Naked Underground do not urge anyone to get free surgery done, ever).
Don’t miss Evil Dead: The Musical. Not be outdone by those Rocky Horror amateurs, this year you can catch the next best thing (please note: I haven’t seen it yet) in Halloween musicals. They boast that this is the only musical in the world with a “Splatter Zone”. Ick. The show is a hilarious live stage performance which takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films, “Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead 2,” and “Army of Darkness” and combines them to make (and I quote) “one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time.”
An exhibition of any and all things Kubrick from original props and screenplays to artefacts from his home a workplace. The man behind 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket is going on display this Friday October 31st. This is a great way to get in the Halloween spirit for under $15.00. Get your ticket today.
The Rocky Horror Cabaret Show
One of the best things about Halloween is watching Rocky Horror Picture Show – while you can catch a viewing at several theatres across the city, none will be as good as catching it live at the LOT with their cabaret show.
As we are always looking for the best shows – we think this one will be a great way to spend Halloween. SBTRKT is playing the Danforth Music Hall – combining great music in a great venue – you can bet this will be a great party.
If you’re into DJ’s and Beer – I have the event for you. Steam Whistle Brewing is throwing their annual Halloween Bash on both Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $33 and each night features a different DJ. I predict it will be a good time.
Want to re-live your prom, zombified? Now’s your chance with Toronto’s own Zombie Prom. Grab an undead date and some tickets and don’t worry – everyone is a Prombie King or Queen.
Looking for just a fun night out but not sure where to go? We suggest you hit up one of our favourite bars that are always a guaranteed good time – Cherry Cola, The Piston, Clintons, Sex Laser, Supermarket – are all having Halloween parties.
