A quick note to interrupt your last-minute Halloween costume shopping (we made our costume yesterday … you’ll definitely hear us coming) to let you know what films we plan to show at the big Shanghaiist Halloween Party on Saturday night. If you haven’t been to Shanghai Studio, it’s a spooky maze-like place that occupies an old bomb shelter. So if music and dancing are your things, we’ve got rooms for that. If chatting and drinking are your things, we’ve got rooms for that, too. For those of you who have “other” activities in mind, there are also plenty of dark hallways and corners for you to do your thing.
And then there’s the scary movie room with a projection screen and limited seating. We’ve decided to show one movie each from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and 2000s. Here’s the planned lineup (start times are estimates, since the person operating the DVD player will more than likely be drinking):
- 9:15 pm: Poltergeist (1982)
- 11:15 pm: Halloween (1978)
- 12:55 am: Scream (1996)
- 2:50 am: Planet Terror (2007)
Here are the terrifying party details, once again:
