Scarefest? More like an aww-fest. I mean, just look at them! Better yet, let them help you scare your friends like this dog did!

5. Do a scare-cam challenge and make it go viral

Everybody likes a good scare, right? Well, at least the scarers do. Have a little fun this Halloween and plan a scare-cam on one of your friends. The scarier, the better. Don’t forget to post it on your social media accounts and let everyone you know have a laugh along with the rest of the world (with permission of course). Your friend will never live this one down!

6. Have a horror movie marathon

Get extra spooky this Halloween and have a horror movie marathon with your friends and family. Make it extra scary by filtering your lights with red cellophane and set multiple alarms of women shrilling. Make them go off at random times during the movie just for the hell of it. The devil is definitely in the details.

7. Watch a Halloween make-up tutorial try replicating it

Ever wondered how real people can look so morbid, especially in zombie movies? Well, take a lesson from these experts and try replicating it on yourself or your friends! Level up by making it a competition among friends. The scariest face gets dinner favours from everyone else!

8. Throw a themed Halloween party

If you’re a social animal or if you just love the idea of themed parties (like I do), plan a Halloween-themed party for a night of fun. Make it mandatory for people to come in their scariest get up and have a laugh at ridiculous and over-the-top outfits. If you’re looking for Halloween costumes, you can check out places like costumes-n-parties or Customade Costume!

Plus, whoever said that you can’t play a scary prank on unsuspecting guests when they come through your doors? Go collect ‘em screams!

9. Go Halloween mask hunting

Go on a mission to find the scariest mask in Singapore. This will make for a fun date-night with your other half. Plus, even if you don’t buy anything, at least it was a fun experience getting to try out all these ridiculous (and not to mention crazy-scary) masks! Share the fun with others by documenting the entire mission on Snapchat or uploading the videos onto Facebook or Instagram!

10. Show off your vocabulary at a Halloween themed taboo

For the word buffs! If you’re a homebody and would rather spend the night in, try having a Halloween themed Taboo game with your friends and family. Curate your own list of Halloween related words and laugh over the length that you friends/family will go to just to get someone to interpret what they’re trying (so hard) to explain.

11. Have a creepy staycation at the rumoured-to-be-haunted New York Hotel at JB

Get spooked by having a (brave) night’s stay at the New York Hotel in Johor Bahru, where it is rumoured to be haunted by a girl who committed suicide.  Nothing scarier than letting your imagination run wild with this spooky story while at the hotel!

12. Plan an elaborate prank and laugh your butt off after

Just because there isn’t a good enough reason for you not to.

Plus, who doesn’t love a good prank on Halloween?  

With all these ideas, you’re more than set to have a goosebump-inducing month of scare fests. Don’t forget to watch your own back. Your friends might have something planned up their sleeves for you too!
