Creepy, haunting Halloween ideas

Murder mysteries, spooky parties and things that go bump in the night

Last Updated: 23 October 2020

We have a spook-tastic selection of things to do this Halloween in Cape Town. From parties and mystery dinners to an unpredicted zombie outbreak, there’s something fun and freaky for everyone. Plus, if you’re into scary movies, the Blair Witch Project is playing at Cape Town High School. 

MURDER MYSTERY: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CAPTAIN?
You’re aboard a ship that crashes onto shore. Valuable cargo goes missing and your captain turns up dead. Who killed him? Why? Was it for Love? Obsession? Fear? The mystery is left for you to solve using the wreckage. If murder mystery is your game, join Be Part Of The Mystery on 31 October for a Halloween special. Come as bruised and bandaged as your shipwreck character would be. For more details on characters and rules, check out the Haunted Masquerade.
Price: R595 pp, includes a three-course meal
Tickets: Spots are filling up fast. You can secure yours via bepartofthemystery.com.

IT'S A HALLO’WEEKEND ON HARRINGTON STREET
For those brave enough to face not one but two ghoulish nights, Harringtons is throwing two Halloween masquerades. It's time to really pimp up those Covid-19 masks and bring your best awe and gore to the party. On Friday, 30 October, enjoy a low-key scary dinner of delicious tapas and cocktails. Then on Saturday, 31 October (Halloween!), is the night to go all out. SurfaRosa will be hosting the Mask Gore’ade and the best dressed will win a prize.
Price: R150 (person per table) - R3,750 (for a 15-person group) 
Tickets: For your two-day Hallo’weekend you can book your tickets via howler.co.za.

WATCH THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT UNDER THE STARS
Fancy sitting in the dark, on a picnic blanket, being scared out of your wits? Then you'll love watching the cultural phenomenon, and supposedly true story, that is the 1999 Blair Witch Project at Cape Town High School in Gardens. The story follows three film students who mysteriously vanish into a Maryland forest. All that's left is their documentary footage. Doors open at 5:30pm, and the movie starts at 7.45 pm.   
Price: R180
Tickets: You can buy your tickets online via thegalileo.co.za, please note that the movie is strictly 16+.

WELCOME TO THE DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND
A Touch of Madness is hosting a murder mystery soiree featuring carnival rock music from bands Dukes of Note and Archduke Knightshade on 31 October. Expect a dress-up dinner and live music as you help solve the murder of Great Uncle Duke. You'll have to work with your fellow diners to figure out the riddles and find the hidden clues. The first person to guess the killer wins fame, glory and an exciting prize.
Price: R100
Tickets: You can save yourself a spot via Quicket.

PREPARE FOR A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK
Ever wondered how the kids would fare in a zombie outbreak? Rush in Claremont is hosting an After Dark Halloween party for kiddos older than 12. You'll begin with three tags around your belt. Each tag will get you a free jump session, but there’s a catch, you must protect your tags from the horde of oncoming zombies. Jump, dive and sprint your way around the arena in order to keep your tags and survive.
Price: R200
Tickets: Secure your spot online via rushsa.co.za
