Halloween 2019: 5 Spooky yet terrific things to do in KL this year

It’s that time of the year when Thriller and Bad Moon Rising can be heard everywhere—on the radio to the television. It’s the season of pumpkin spiced latte (which we now have in Malaysia). We see the re-run of classic Halloween-related films such as Scream, Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Addams Family, and The Conjuring. Isn’t it funny how mortals deliberately get themselves terrified? After all, we are always going to be thrilled by the thrills that thrill us. Three thrills in one sentence? That sure was thrilling. Oops… (we) did it again!

On the days leading up to 31 October every year, we (as in humans) look for various ways to celebrate the last day of the month in horrifying fashion. Like Ryuk said in the movie Death Note, humans are… so much fun. That’s reality because whether you thought of pumpkins, candies, or Casper the Friendly Ghost, there are a myriad of activities or events for you to do. Oh, Kuala Lumpur—so beautiful yet filled with hidden horror gems this Halloween. We have some suggestions below on how to achieve that macabre high you’re seeking.

1. SuperHalloween, SuperPark Malaysia
