It all gets old rather quickly. The trouble is that there isn’t really much to do during Fright Night besides beg for candy and go to parties.

At least, that’s what you probably think. And well, you can’t really be blamed for it. But you’re going to be incredibly happy to know that there are hidden adventures everywhere. You just need to know where to look. And that’s exactly what this article’s for. So, what else can you do on Halloween night? Read on:

The Massacre Filmfest

ImprovBoston’s Gorefest:XV Horror House

If you’re fond of bloodbaths (not real blood, of course), then this event in Boston should be to your liking. The event is held from the 19th of October to the 31st. A word of caution though: don’t wear anything white or nice because the entire venue is literally going to be a sanguine splash zone. Think of it as a Carrie-inspired scene.
