Friday the 13th in Los Angeles: ‘Christine’, Spooky Night Hike & Lights-Out Rock Climb

Don’t miss John Carpenters demonic auto possessed horror classic, ‘Christine’, screening at Pershing Square.

As we prepare for our busy fall season, we also prepare for an extra eerie Friday the 13th , which will bring us a mysterious full moon, an event that will not repeat itself for another 35 years! And if you don’t plan on turning into a werewolf at the first sight of the full moon, we’ve found some choice events that fit this ghostly happening.

For a taste of midnight cliff climbing, strap on your headlamp, glowsticks and zombie survival kit, then take to the walls in this creepy lights-out indoor rock climb. The folks at ROCKreation Gym LA in Santa Monica are a doing a lights out vertical zombie walk in tribute to Friday the 13th. And don’t forget to put on your creepiest look fit for the occasion for their spooktacular costume contest.

For those who prefer to spend Friday the 13th relaxing in the comfort of the great outdoors and take in a spooky evening movie instead, check out John Carpenters 1983 horror masterpiece, ‘Christine’, about a classic ’58 Plymouth Fury named Christine who takes on the personality of a jealous girlfriend and will do anything to protect her nerdish owner. Screening at Pershing Square, in downtown Los Angeles.

And finally, there exists among us, a brave breed of souls who wish to venture out into the night, relishing in the thought of risking their lives and succumbing to the strange happenings on Friday the 13th. And to these courageous individuals, we suggest the Full Moon Friday the 13th Night Hike and Potluck. Spend the evening scampering around the trails of Griffith Park in this 5 mile round trip night hike featuring a communal pot luck at the top of the mountain. Don’t forget to take your Jello-filled brain molds, conveniently available at your very own Dapper Cadaver!

Summer Horror Movies and Scary Sleepaway Camp

School’s out for summer! For all you horror shock rock fans, here’s a clip of rock & roll’s original Prince of Darkness, Alice Cooper, performing ‘School’s Out’, from 1972.

Summer is here, and it’s finally time to ditch the books, homework and hours of detention for European vacations, fun in the sun, beach blanket bingo and horror camp, for those of us who like to be spooked all year ‘round.

It’s also time to make way for a few new summer horror films that will definitely shake things up. The highly anticipated The Purge: Anarchy comes at us on June 18th and this time takes us into the streets for the 12 hours of lawless mayhem. Rounding out summer horror films is Deliver Us from Evil, slated for a July 2nd release, is hoping to bring out all the fans of its prequel, Sinister, for more disturbing delights.

Finally for those of you who want to live out your real horror fantasies in the real Sleepaway Camp, make sure not to miss The Great Horror Campout this weekend, a real life horror themed camp, complete with flesh eating zombies and midnight axe wielders, only this time, the campers are the prey. Especially watch out for the bloody weapons and props being wielded in your direction. See if you can spot horror props provided by Dapper Cadaver!

Stay cool and creepy this summer and if you happen to be a midnight flesh eating zombie, make sure to slather on that SPF 1000 sunblock if you have to go out during daylight hours. There’s nothing scary about a zombie with a sunburn.
