Ella Rebecca has been in love with the horror genre since an early age. The Bride of Frankenstein began her love of the classics and she's been writing and collecting since.

Halloween is coming up, and the perfect way to spend it is by watching horror movies. But what if you want something a little more interactive than watching them alone on your couch? Luckily, there are all kinds of group activities for horror movie lovers that you can try.


Horror Trivia

Horror trivia is the perfect way to test your knowledge of the genre and see how much you really know about all things horror. There are plenty of questions out there to stump even the most knowledgeable horror fan, so get ready to put your knowledge to the test. 


Whether you’re playing with friends or family, this is a great way to pass the time and have some fun. You can even make it interesting by incorporating spooky prizes for the winners.



Escape Room

Escape rooms have skyrocketed in popularity and for good reason! They’re the perfect blend of excitement, suspense, and teamwork, making them the perfect activity for any group of horror movie lovers. Not to mention, they’re a great way to test your knowledge of all things horror.


If you’re looking for an escape room that’s sure to send shivers down your spine, all you need to do is search them online. There is a super scary escape room in Boston, Paniq Escape Room, that has various themed rooms from insane asylums to a cartel crackdown. With just an hour to solve the puzzles and escape, you and your team will need to work together quickly or be stuck in the room forever.


Whether you’re looking for a classic haunted house experience or something a little more unique, there’s an escape room out there that’s perfect for any preference. 


Haunted House

There is nothing like experiencing scares together in a haunted house. There are many different types of haunted houses, from traditional Haunted Houses to VR experiences. Whatever your group’s preference, there is sure to be a haunted house that will suit your needs.


One of the benefits of going to a haunted house as a group is that you can build up each other’s suspense. Being in a group allows you to egg each other on and make the experience even more intense. If you are looking for an unforgettable experience, then take your group to a haunted house this Halloween season!


Pumpkin Carving

If you love horror movies, then you’ll definitely enjoy carving pumpkins! This is a great activity to do with friends or family, and it’s also a great way to get into the Halloween spirit. 


Just make sure to choose a design that’s appropriate for your skill level. You don’t want to end up with a pumpkin that looks like it was carved by a child!


To make sure you carve the best pumpkin, purchase all of the following materials: 

  • A pumpkin carving kit


  • A sharp knife


  • A large spoon


  • A bowl for the pumpkin seeds



Once you have all of your materials, it’s time to start carving! Begin by using the large spoon to scoop out all of the pumpkin seeds and pulp from the inside of the pumpkin. Then, use the knife to cut out your design. 



Be sure to make the cuts as clean and precise as possible. When you’re finished carving, place a candle inside the pumpkin and light it. Then sit back and enjoy your handiwork!



Spooky Corn Maze

Corn mazes are spooky, suspenseful, and a lot of fun! Plus, they’re a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the autumn weather.


There are plenty of corn mazes to choose from, so finding one should be easy. And if you really want to get into the Halloween spirit, try visiting one at night! Just be sure to bring a flashlight!


Corn mazes can be found across the country, and many of them are open year-round. So, if you’re looking for a spooky activity to do this Halloween, be sure to visit a corn maze near you!



Visit Real-Life Haunted Locations
