Halloween in LA 2015 Master List

The master list this year is broken down by Film, Haunt, Events and On Halloween proper itself. Keep this list in your favorites as it'll updated, but be sure to stay connected to Things To Do In LA for all the latest on what to do for Halloween. Get ready to be spooked all through October and even starting as early as this September. This list will make you gasp as it grows, populating with fiendish delights. Dance parties and djs will start to rise from the dead to take over. Beyond the veil of horror film festivals and special screenings they'll be even more for LA is a city that makes Halloween year round. When Halloween finally hits it will consume us all. And you Sir or Madam or will have this handy list to look at. Now start planning your frights!


Sept 3-Oct 30
Main Location
The Cinefamily
611 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036
$Varies by event, but around $14.00

An onslaught of horror films, special events and musical performances spread out over two months. The festival comes from SpectreVision, owned by Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Elijah Wood. Not surprisingly it starts off with Cooties, teachers vs kid zombies, starring Wood.

Oct 1-4
Raleigh Studios
5300 Melrose Ave Los Angeles, CA 90038
$10.00 per block, an All-Fest Pass, good for all four days of the festival, is now available on our website, for just $140.00, this pass includes the opening night party and guaranteed entrance to all films/Q&A's.

The definition of an indie horror festival. This festival includes new talent of strange sci-fi to funny horror comedy in four days. Some times it can really be hit or miss so choose on what looks right for you to get the most scares. Their opening premiere is 6:15, the first feature shot in first-person POV and in one continuous take (I'm not sure if that's true.) Hunting, however comes close to home as anything set in LA does it for TTDILA. The premise of being hunted in or around the city is always a frightening idea.
Beyond Fest

UCB Franklin 
5919 Franklin Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90028
For years, Universal Studios Hollywood put on an annual Halloween stage show starring Bill and Ted, lampooning the biggest pop culture happenings of the previous year. Recently, the show was canceled forever for being dumb and bad. That's why we decided to keep the tradition alive by presenting what we think Universal Studios' 2015 Bill and Ted show probably would have been. Because Los Angeles deserves an extremely unfunny, genuinely upsetting comedy show featuring empty pop culture references and two characters from a movie that has not held up well. No one is safe. Not even... The Avengers?!

Sounds great for fans of AT shows, what Halloween related Cartoon Network art could come up. Or will it be art just related to the cartoons, thus making less sense of why it's happening on Halloween. They should have just done a Marceline event, oh CN licensing  you often don't meet any of my expectations as a consumer, the idiotic brands you connect with some times. Not this time, but that first AT watch and that clothing line at Gallery 1988, yessh.

$20 in advance, 18+

Here's our review.

You'll be trapped in a haunted warehouse downtown. To make it more intense and beating the ever flowing lines of the theme parks it's only six to a party that transverses this new twisted maze. Themed horror rooms and interactive scares as it all gets darker. Twisted games only makes us wonder what else is going on at this new haunt. We can't wait to try it out.

Walk through this haunt in small groups. From the little the give online it seems to be based around an insane asylum. This group has been doing it for a few years so they must be doing something scary.

The Alone Experience: Unweave the Rainbow
October 17, 18, 21-25, 28-Nov 1, 2015 

 A fully immersive 45-minute walkthrough experience, which you enter alone. Its an artistic exploration of fear, loneliness and self preservation. We can't comment as we've never tried it here at TTDILA, however this is it's fourth year of production. From what we've glossed over you do get touched and it is in no way like a normal haunted house.

This year's theme is head scratching to say the least:
Unweave the Rainbow is four experiments in human emotion that explore interaction. When light encounters an object, one of four actions occur; diffusion, refraction, reflection and absorption.

The 17th Door
 2856 El Camino Real, Tustin, CA 92782

The biggest Halloween event on Halloween in LA, taking up almost all of West Hollywood, a huge street carnival. Multiple stages for music to hear as you stroll down the street in costume. The turn out in numbers is around 500,000. For new comers, it is a heavy cross dressing event and very connected to the LBGT community. Everyone is however welcome and has some of the most amazing costumes you'll see.
