A spooktacular Halloween

Halloween is two weeks away and thanks to Ms Niyo, I’m going to scare myself silly at Sentosa Spooktacular this Friday!

I used to be such a huge fan of horror movies that I’d stay up till the wee hours of the morning alone to watch horror shows on TV. That was until Sadako appeared in “The Ring” back in the late nineties. The funny thing is, I don’t think I’ve ever watched that movie in its entirety and certainly not that final scene where Sadako showed the world her freaky eyelashes-less eye. My fear of ghosts with long black hair crawling awkwardly on the floor while emitting eerie croaky groans stemmed from the silly prank emails that were widely popular back in those days. Remember those innocuous emails that come with image attachments or website links where you’re supposed to spot something in the pictures/videos? Yeah? And before you could spot anything, a picture of a ghost would appear right in your face and scare you shitless. After being subjected to a few such scares, I’m now reduced to a wimpy scaredy cat when it comes to pictures or videos of anything supernatural.

Having said that, visiting a theme haunted house (houses, in this case) is a different thing altogether. I hope it’s going to be fun and that I won’t embarrass myself by squealing too much. Tickets go at S$28 for early birds who book theirs before Thursday, 21 October 2010. If you wish to subject yourself to some scares as well, you can visit the official website and buy the tickets online here.

Happy Halloween!
