Cape Town, Feeling Keen for Halloween?

Nothing like a good scare to get the blood flowing! Get your fear fix at the 11th annual HorrorFest with movies, literature, music, live readings, competitions and more. This year’s movie lineup will include bloody movies, scary short films and deadly documentaries – a chilling live performance will set the tone during a screening of 1926 silent movie Faust. If these don’t take your breath away, there’s always dancing your bum off at the Horrorfest after party.

Transport: We trust you’ll be full of fearful jitters afterwards. Why not grab a cab home?
