Well it's that time of year again, and for her first ever All Hallow’s Eve our undead heroine, Ellen Love, has been selected for a trio of great Halloween screamings, I mean screenings.
First up is the Halloween Happening at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield. On Halloween night, Saturday 31st October, the whole theatre will be opened-up for a night of partying, entertainment and live performance across the building, including spooky films on the big screen and a nightclub in the ‘crypt’. Fancy dress is required to get in – and it’s 7pm-2am folks. Tickets £15.
Second is Caligari's Movie Extravaganza, where, of course, October’s event is a horror night, combining short films with music and live Vjing. This one’s at the Green Dragon, Croydon on Friday 30th – so that’s All Hallow’s Eve Eve, I guess? Either way, kick off is at 8pm. Tickets £4.
And last but most definitely not least is the Son of Movie Bar, Brighton's sequel night to the cult Movie Bar. Actually a little late for Halloween - it's on 3rd November – but the whole night will be horror themed and sounds like it’ll be a ripper. It's all happening at the usual place – The Cornerstone on Elm Grove. 8pm. Entry is free.

A little addendum here - we've just been told that Ellen Love will also be part of the line-up for the Destructors' Manifesto night, being held over the water at Dublin's Tivoli Theatre this Friday 30th October. This promises to be "a one-night festival of music, theatre, short films and live graffiti, celebrating the dark, the weird and the wonderful". 7pm. Tickets 10 euro.
So that turns our Halloween trio into a foursome... oo-er!
