Frightful Films 😱

Horror fans, assemble! It’s officially autumn, which means it’s officially time to scare yourself silly. And Vue can help with that! From creepy demon children and cackling witches to nightmarish clowns and machete-wielding madmen, they’re bringing a whole bunch of horror classics back to the big screen. Check out the horrifying Halloween line-up below.

  • The Exorcist | 50th Anniversary What better way to get yourself in the mood for spooky season than with a bit of head twisting and projectile vomiting? The original, demonically possessed child is back to kickstart your Halloween.
  • Christine | 40th Anniversary It’s that age-old story of boy meets car. A nerdish boy buys a strange car with an evil mind of its own and his nature starts to change to reflect it.
  • Hocus Pocus They say all good things come in threes, but they clearly weren’t talking about the Sanderson sisters… The wicked trio are back (again) to feast on some delicious children, and look fabulous whilst doing so. We knew we shouldn’t have lit that black candle…
  • IT: Chapter One It wouldn’t be Halloween without a visit from a certain nightmare hell clown, would it? Yes, Pennywise will be back to feast on your darkest fears, which, to be honest, is probably Pennywise himself. We’ll be showing the first chapter of this rebooted horror classic – you know, the one where they’re all kids.
  • The Lost Boys You better get yourself a garlic T-shirt, because The Lost Boys are making their big return. In this blood-thirsty classic, California newbies Michael and Sam find themselves sucked into a world of vampire bikers – one of which just happens to look like a young Kiefer Sutherland.
  • Friday the 13th CH CH CH AH AH AH… You hear that? That’s the sound of a bloke in an ice hockey mask with a massive machete coming to get you. When it comes to good old fashioned slashers, nothing beats the original Friday the 13th.

There’s even more horrors this October too with a host of new releases that either continue the nightmare or bring you something brand new to fear! So head to the big screen for some big thrills this Halloween, after all, it’s better when we scream together…

Creepy Cocktails 🐍

Pick your poison! We’ve got plenty Halloween-themed drinks brewing at Printworks, both delicious and deadly! It’s the perfect way to start your wicked weekend…

Black Widow 

Beware! The Black Widow has arrived at Treetop Adventure Golf! Face your fears with this macabre mocktail, crafted by Matt from Treetop Leicester. Pineapple juice, shaken with blood orange, blackberry, vanilla and lime. Topped with The Black Widow’s web. Add some venom and turn this mocktail into a chilling cocktail by adding Stoli Vodka.

Venomous Tipple

Slither to the dark side with a taste of the wickedly delightful Venom cocktail at Walkabout. You could beat the frenzy and pre-book a pitcher & shots package for you and your goulish gang! Enjoy two pitchers of Venom cocktail and six classic shots for just £35 – now that’s a real treat!

Pun-beliveable Poisons

How about sipping on some spooky cocktails served by the undead at O’Neill’s? Try the limited-edition Bacardi cocktails including the Zombie, Draquari and Spookito (see what they did there?). Or take your chances with the limited edition Twisted Shot – it’ll give you the Heebie Jeebies! All the O’Neill’s team will be dressing up for that added atmosphere so don’t forget to compliment them on their costumes, or they’ll curse your cocktail!

Pitchers & Shots

Head to Wetherspoon from 12th – 31st Oct and you can summon some devilish drinks deals! They’ve got cocktail pitchers at 2 for £15 so why not try each of their Halloween Specials… First out of the witches’ cauldron is the Venom cocktail pitcher – a devilish mix of Southern Comfort, WKD Blue and orange juice (no eye of newt in this one). Or rise like the dead with a Zombie made with The Kraken Black Spiced Rum, Captain Morgan White, pineapple juice, orange juice, lemon juice, lemonade, and lime. Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble with double shots too – any 2 for £7.20! Double up on classics like Baby Guinness & Jammy Dodger or try a delicious shot of Zombie Brain! Straight from the graveyard this one’s made from Archers peach schnapps layered with Baileys and grenadine to resemble a brain in a shot glass.
