scare yourself silly this halloween

It’s time to crack out the fancy dress and scoff everything pumpkin spice flavour because Halloween is fast approaching. From immersive horror experiences to meme fancy dress, here’s how to make your Halloween spook-tacular rather than a total nightmare.

Kraken Screamfest | Director’s Cut

The Kraken Rum always does Halloween well and this year is no different as the brand has got director Neil Marshall (he did The Descent and Dog Soldiers) to direct its experience. He’s not giving away any secrets but rest assured this is gonna be full of scary surprises – The Descent was bloody terrifying so we certain that isn’t for the fainthearted.
