Halloween

If you love haunted houses, spooky places with f*cked up histories, listen up.

As the holiday for thrills and chills are almost upon us, ditch the local creepy haunt and stick these on your bucket list.

For a real scare, Holiday Guru has hooked us up with some of the most terrifyingly haunted places on the planet. 

1. Island of the Dolls, Mexico

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Ghost Adventures (@ghostadventures) on

First up is one you might be familiar with, chilling on a small island outside Mexico City is probably one of the most freakish tributes to a young girl.

A man named Don Juliano Santana Barrera was the caretaker and lone inhabitant of the island, and legend tells that he found a young girl's body who had drowned in the canals

In the 1950s, he hung her doll to a tree to remember her little life, and supposedly many believe the man was then possessed by the girl's spirit – JUST, NOPE.

He began decorating the place with more and more dolls, turning it into a bizarre wonderland of cracked, dirty toys.

If you want to see this little hellish island, grab a boat and get ready to see one of the weirdest collections of dolls in the world.

2. Poveglia, Venice

If creepy dolls ain't your thing, why not try the bubonic plague?

This island in the Venetian lagoon was home to imprisoned people suffering from the disease in the late 18th century, which means there are thousands of pissed off souls lurking here.

Get out your ghostbuster gear, as the island also hosted a mental asylum in 1922, and the doctors were reportedly d*cks, as they tortured patients.

The story goes that they would perform crude lobotomies and using hammers and drills as surgical instruments. – which is probably why the island is said to have a morbid atmosphere.

Tourists have reported screams and if your travels aren't entertaining enough, why not risk becoming possessed, as some people say visitors to the island have been – joyous. 

3. Aokigahara, Japan

At the base of Mount Fuji, forget the compass as the paranormal activity is rife. 

Aokigahara, is better known as Japan's ‘suicide forest’. The forest has sadly become known as the world’s second most popular place to take one’s life. 

The forest’s malevolent energies are said to swallow up unfortunate visitors and the atmosphere is unlike anywhere else.

And, if you do frequent the forest, just don't make a Youtube video about it – *cough, cough*

4. Centralia – Pennsylvania Ghost Town

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Dave Wynn (@gwydir_) on

Don't fall for the pretty colours in the image, this used to be a high way and there's a very good reason why nature is reclaiming this city.

The town of Centralia, Pennsylvania is a modern-day ghost town because they suffered a coal mine fire in 1962 – which is still burning today.

It's a real-life horror story as people began to fall ill as lethal levels of carbon monoxide billowed towards the surface.

Sinkholes literally appear in people’s back gardens – one of which nearly killed one young boy. Fewer than 10 people live here today.

While the town isn’t necessarily haunted, it does get an influx of curious, seek-thrilling tourists around Halloween. 

5. The witches of Salem, Massachusetts

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Lucious Bloodfire (@lucious_bloodfire) on

In the late 17th-century, the children of Salem Village, Massachusetts experienced something rather baffling. Cue the young ladies going into fits, making strange noises, throwing objects and contorting their bodies.

Instead of looking for a logical explanation, witchcraft was the obvious cause.

Hysteria erupted which led to the infamous Salem Witch Trials when over a dozen people were executed.

The judges involved in the trials and future sheriffs died under mysterious circumstances and today, strange noises and mysterious floating lights have been reported at the local cemetery. 

6. Greyfriars Kirkyard, Edinburgh

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kundry (@kundry1882) on

You couldn't pay me enough money to visit this place. Why I hear you scream? – Well, only controlled visits at night for ghost tours are allowed – which sends alarm bells ringing.

Would you actually risk being abused? Visitors often leave with bruises, scratches, bite marks and burns and fainting is a regular occurrence – that's some serious head rush.

But why is this place so locked with a dark aura? Well, it is said that the hundreds-year-old graveyard is protected by the ghost of George McKenzie, a ruthless judge who imprisoned and starved over 1,000 Scottish Presbyterians in the 1600s – So don't f*ck with him.

7. Ballygally Castle, Northern Ireland

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Ballygally Castle (@ballygally_castle_official) on

This tale involves one evil husband and the male ego. Lady Isabella Shaw was unfortunately wed to James Shaw and couldn't produce a male heir – it's your swimmers, mate. 

When she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, James snatched the child and locked Lady Shaw in the room, leaving her to stave.

In a bid to escape, some say she fell from the window, others say she was pushed – either way, it's a grim way to die.

She has remained in the hotel ever since, gently knocking on bedroom doors and walking the corridors, looking for her child. Today, you can lap up luxury in the hotel and visit the “Ghost Room”.

8. Lawang Sewu Semarang, Indonesia

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Traveller Baper  (@misbah.muniir) on

A truly spooky place, Lawang Sewu translates to “a thousand doors”.

During WWII, the Japanese used its basement to imprison, torture and kill Indonesian nationalists and Dutch colonials.

Among the ghostly residents, there's one badass b*tch, a Dutch woman who supposedly committed suicide inside as well as the beheaded rebels who were killed by the Japanese.

 9. Château de Brissac, France

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Château de Brissac  (@chateaudebrissac) on

You really couldn't get more cliche than this: in 1477, Lady Charlotte de Breze was caught doing the dirty on her husband with Jacques de Breze. 

In a fit of rage, her husband murdered her and since the incident, guests have reported seeing the ghost through the window of the tower room of the castle’s chapel, with holes where her nose and mouth should be.

Her moans are said to be heard throughout the chateau early in the morning.

10. Bhangarh Fort, India

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jaipur Bytes (@jaipur_bytes) on

Last but not least, we meet an abandoned 17th-century fort, known as one of the most haunted places in India. So much so, tourists and locals under government orders are forbidden to enter the fort after the sun sets. 

As the tale goes, a magician, Singhia fell in love with the beautiful Princess Ratnavati. The tantrik attempted to use magic to win her over, but the Princess learned of his plan and sentenced him to death. Before Singhia died, he cursed the fort's residents to die and for the surrounding houses to remain roofless forever.

Nowadays, the surrounding village is abandoned and Bhangarh Fort attracts plenty of curious tourists who have reported hearing the screams of ghosts and seeing strange lights. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Josh Perrett / Bristol  (@josh.perrett) on

You couldn't offer me enough to get me to willingly go to any of these places.

But if you're brave, adventurous and curious, these are a definite in the travel plans, but remember – BE RESPECTFUL.

If restrictions exist, they're for your own safety – don't be that person.

With Halloween just around the corner and bonfires, fireworks and more all something our dogs have to deal with, Chris Hanlon of Werewolf Food has provided his top tips for keeping your dog happy and safe. 

He says, “Halloween anxiety in dogs in a very real scenario and although you’ll know when your dog is scared, unhappy or nervous, knowing how to handle it in the moment, or avoid it altogether is key. Every element of the day from the food to the fireworks needs to be considered but planning a little ahead should make for a relaxing evening.” 

  • Walk 

Chris says: “Bringing your dog for a longer walk than usual early in the evening or late in the afternoon, before much of the madness ensues, will help to relax them as much as possible and hopefully mean they are a little bit less angsty if the evening turns out be full of loud noises and have lots of visitors. As we know, the fireworks and noises can be unexpected so it’s worthwhile keeping your dog on its lead throughout.”

  • Hide the sweet treats 

Chris explains, “The next obvious risk to dogs on Halloween night is the sweet treats left for trick-or-treaters. These need to be kept out of reach of your furry friend. We all know our dogs will sniff out every human treat they are not supposed to have and get up to all kinds of mischief in the kitchen when we’re not looking so it’s worthwhile being extra careful and leaving treats in high cupboards or locked away in between trick-or-treater visits. Monkey nut shells can be a choking risk while chocolate and other sweet treats can be poisonous to dogs and cause tummy upset so stick to the dog-friendly treats to include your dog in the fun.”

  • Dangerous décor 

As with the sweet treats, Chris reminds us that dangerous decorations can be a risk too. He says, “The number one risk is lit pumpkins. We all know our dogs are curious and as they aren’t used to inviting lit pumpkins, keep them out of paws reach. Overall, my advice would be not to overdo it – the more the house appears to be unfamiliar, especially with scary statues and hangers, the more your dog will get riled up. Bear in mind too that by wearing a mask, your dog no longer recognises you and your family members so perhaps pop it on out of their sight.”

  • Stay with them 

Chris explains, “It might seem like the practical option to keep your dog away from the noise in the quietest part of the house but we can underestimate just how scary fireworks, spooky costumes and consistent unexpected visitors can be to dogs so I suggest keeping them close, giving them their favourite toys to keep them as distracted as possible and comforting them with affection as they need it. A handy trick is to turn on music or the TV to try and drown out external noise as much as possible.”

  • Ask a friend 

Chris advises not leaving things to chance. He says, “If you have a gut feeling that your dog isn’t going to react well, it might be worthwhile asking a friend in a quieter area if you can pop round for the busy times or even asking them to dog sit. You can also consider a boarding kennels in a rural area that you rate so you can have some peace of mind.”

The list of Halloween movies we adore gets longer and longer every year. We just can’t get enough of the frightening films and neither can Ireland.

A new study by Halloween FM has revealed the nation’s favourite Halloween movie and it is a classic.

26 years after it was first released, Hocus Pocus is still Ireland’s favourite Halloween movie – that’s according to a new survey carried out by Halloween FM.

Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) say that Hocus Pocus is their favourite movie, followed by Halloween (21 percent) and Nightmare on Elm Street (13 percent). Thriller by Michael Jackson takes first place (30 percent) as the favourite Halloween song with just under with 1962 classic The Monster Mash taking second place at 17 percent.

Decorations for Halloween are growing in popularity year-on-year, and this year is no exception, with a whopping 65 percent of people saying they will decorate their houses “from top to bottom” for Halloween, but full-on American-inspired ghouls and spiderweb adorning the front of the house doesn’t appeal to everyone, with 29 percent of people say that something small to decorate the house or porch will suffice, such as a carved pumpkin. Just 6 percent said they won’t bother with any decorations at all.

U.S President Donald Trump emerges as the figure of many nightmares, with 41 percent saying that he is the worst celebrity they would want to be stuck in a haunted house with. Katie Hopkins comes second, with 29 percent running for cover from the out-spoken English media personality. Hilariously, just 7 percent of respondents object to Freddy Krueger.

There are only days to go until Halloween and some people are more ready than ever for the spooky holiday. People have been planning their costumes, practising their makeup looks and organising festivities for quite some time, and others (myself included) have left everything until the last minute.

Thankfully, the makeup mavericks of Instagram are here to save the day for those of you who are like me. Us procrastinators need all the help we can get, especially if you’re invited to a last minute Halloween celebration.

I’ve conjured up a list of the best (and easiest) makeup looks that will make Halloween a lot easier for my fellow procrastinators

The Classic Cat:

This look will take all of two minutes to achieve. All you need is some eyeliner and you’re good to go. Draw three whiskers on each of your cheeks and dab on a little black nose on the tip of yours and hey-presto you’re a cat. Is it one of the most over-done costumes? Yes. But will it make your night a hell of a lot less stressful? YES.

Unicorn:

Dress up as this beloved mythical creature by making the most of your glitter collection. Use your boldest and most colourful lipstick and go to town with the rhinestones to transform yourself into a unicorn. Add a unicorn headband and you’re good to go.

Harley Quinn:

She is probably the most loved member of the Suicide Squad so embrace the pigtails and smeared lipstick this Halloween. Forget about your makeup being flawless because the messier it is the better. Add some red and blue temporary dye to your hair to achieve the look.

Mia Wallace:

The Pulp Fiction leading lady is by far one of the coolest characters to dress up as for Halloween. All you need is a dramatic red lip and the nose-bleed stain and you’re good to go. Pop on a white blouse and some black skinny jeans and you’ve achieved Mia’s bad-ass look.

A new report from thortful.com has revealed the areas of Ireland where you’re most likely to experience an alien encounter based on data from the National UFO Reporting Centre.

Alien life has been found and contact has been made with planet Earth… or so it would appear.

The night sky consists of 10 billion galaxies, or to be more precise, 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars and according to a new report by thortful.com aliens live amongst these stars and constellations and even make regular visits to planet Earth.  

Aliens, however, appear to be picky about their tourist/holiday destinations only appearing in the skies above certain cities.

To celebrate Halloween on October 31 thortful analysed data from the National UFO Reporting Centre, revealing the UFO hotspots of the Ireland. Data was analysed from the years 1998 – 2019.

The most haunted locations

Data analysed from the National UFO Reporting Centre has revealed that residents of Dublin are the most likely to encounter alien life.

For many of us, the re-watching of Hocus Pocus has become an annual tradition at this time of year, and suffice to say many of us believe we know the 1993 movie inside out.

But do you know its origins? OrigInal name? Intended storyline? Nah, we didn't think so.

Well, come little children because you're about to find out.

While discussing the movie with EW recently, writer Mick Garris explained that his original screenplay was a much darker movie – one which ultimately never made it to the silver screen.

"What I had written originally was about 12-year-olds. The kids being younger and in more jeopardy was certainly something more explicitly frightening," he explained.

Revealing that the movie's original title was, in fact, Halloween House, Mick went on to explain that the film initially piqued the interest of director, Stephen Spielberg, until industry rivalry forced him to pass on it.

"He loved it until he found out that Disney was already involved, Mick said. "At that time, Disney and Amblin were very competitive in the family-film market, so neither of them wanted to be in business with the other."

Mick explained that, under the scrutiny of a team of writers, the first draft became 'broadly comedic', and soon evolved from a dark story to the family favourite we know today.

Halloween movies have a special place in our hearts and this month, we can't get enough of throwback movies to get us in the mood for all things spooky.

Plus, who doesn't love a good 90's made-for-TV Disney classic? 

1. The Addams Family, 1991

To start things off, we gotta have the most famous Halloween fam of all time.

A dysfunctional family at it's best, there is a disembodied hand called Thing, a cousin called It that is completely covered in hair and creepy Uncle Fester. 

Plus, it's gives us costumes for even the laziest person – Wednesday Addams anyone?   

2. Halloween I and II, 1978 and 1981

The original slasher flick, John Carpenter's masterpieces brought us the legend that is Jamie Lee Curtis in her breakout role as a Scream Queen.

It's the typical Halloween fare – babysitters getting stalked by a masked man who wants to butcher them all. Throw in the super creepy musical score and you've got yourself the perfect autumn night in. 

3. Halloweentown, 1998 

Who didn't watch this Disney classic as a kid? It's cheesy and a bit cringey but who cares.

Debbie Reynolds is a delight as the witch who comes to tell her teen granddaughter that she too has magical powers. It's the ideal movie to put on and let your brain switch off – we dare you to watch and not feel a twinge of nostalgia. 

4.  The Rocky Horror Picture Show, 1975

This cult classic has midnight shows still running today where fans dress up as the characters and sing along to the songs.

Tim Curry is genius as Dr Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist who lures innocent couple, Brad and Janet into his castle.

Amazing music ensues and there's even an appearance from Meatloaf. 

5. Teen Witch, 1989 

This forgotten gem is so 80's it hurts. Available on Netflix, it follows teen Louise as she realises her witchy skills on her 16th birthday (Yes, just like Sabrina)

Watch it even just for the ridiculously dated rap battle plonked in the middle of the movie that adds nothing to the plot.

6. Double Double, Toil and Trouble, 1993

Disney. 1990's. Olsen Twins. Halloween. We're in heaven.

This movie tells the tale that on Halloween night, two precocious little girls try to save their parents from their scary aunt.

It's the perfect slice of magical nostalgia to make you wish you could go trick-or-treating again. 

7. The Witches, 1990

This movie genuinely terrified me as a kid.

Adapted from Roald Dahls' book, it follows an orphan, Luke, who sees a coven of witches and discovers that they want  to turn all children into mice with a magical formula.

The witches find out that Luke is onto them and plan to test the formula on him. It's quite freaky, tbh.

9. Practical Magic, 1998

Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman playing supernatural sisters, who are trying to end a family curse that keeps them from finding true love? Yes please. 

10. Carrie, 1976

It wouldn't be a Halloween movie list without at least one nod to Stephen King.

And Carrie is one of his best – following a bullied high school teenager, who has a nutty religious mum and is delighted to be asked to prom by hottie Tommy Ross. When a prank goes wrong, she lets loose.

The whole prom scene is magnificent rom start to finish.

11. The Witches of Eastwick, 1987

Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon – name a more iconic trio, I dare you.

They have each lost the man in their lives until a stranger in the form of Jack Nicholson starts to date them all and eventually tells them that they are witches

October is officially here and we are so ready to embrace the autumn time. The bright evenings have left us so trips to the beach are few and far between, but we'll still be kept busy in October. We're talking Hocus Pocus movie night, reading books by the fire and drinking way too much hot chocolate.

We'll also be turning the house into an autumn treasure trove. There'll be pumpkins and colourful leaves everywhere you look and nothing can stop us. We're nearly tempted to follow in Zoe Sugg's footsteps and buy an autumn wreath and some hay bails for the front porch.

Ok, so there hasn't been a brilliant flick in the franchise since Halloween 2 in 1980 BUT 2018's offering was met with good reviews and positivity from fans.

Cast members Judy Greer and Andi Matichak are expected to reprise their roles as Laurie’s daughter and granddaughter.

Why it was such a success was not only the return of Jamie Lee but also the fact that it was a direct sequel to John Carpenters 1978 original. 

Carpenter is expected to return as a producer of the 2020 sequel so that can only mean good things.

Horror has taken over cinema since 2017, with the Stephen King remake of It, Jordan Peele's Get Out and Us, Hereditary, Happy Death Day, A Quiet Place and Summer of '84.

There is a real hunger there to be sacred, and it's clearly a formula that has an audience.

So yeah, it might be a story that's been told a good few times but so what?

I know for sure I'll be watching it.

It's looking like Fiji Water Girl has found one hater already, after gaining notoriety at the Golden Globes for world-class attention grabbing photobombs.

Jamie Lee Curtis has criticised the "blatant promotion" tactics taken at the Globes, after she specially requested for no advertising to take place on her behalf.

Fiji Water Girl has become an internet sensation; Kelleth Cuthbert was noticed almost immediately online by viewers of the coveted awards ceremony for her "ominous" constant presence.

The famous Halloween actress noticed that she was included in a photo with Kelleth Cuthbert after her husband, who "doesn't look at a lot of show business news sites," read an article on CNN.

Jamie took to Instagram to inform her  followers that she "specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji… where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera." 

"I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn't want to be doing advertising for either," she reveals, clearly frustrated.

The 60-year-old veteran actress claims she intentionally moved out of the way to avoid being photographed with brands who she doesn't endorse, she was still papped with Fiji Water Girl.

"Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens," she said.

She claims that brands must be more cautious around celebrity marketing; "The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products," she says. 

She is currently the lone star to slam Fiji Water for their PR stunt at the awards show, which is in its 76th year.

Richard Madden, Amy Adams, Idris Elba and Jim Carrey were all pictured with Cuthbert loitering in the background but haven't commented as of yet. Whose side are you on? We stan Queen Curtis.

The sweets have been eaten, the costumes are in tatters and we've still got traces of face paint still embedded into our faces.

It was a family affair in the Burtka-Harris household and they really did go all out.

They were transformed into haunting hitchhiking ghosts.

Baby Baston hasn't just stolen Eva's heart, he's taken ours too – cue the ovaries fluttering.

The four-month-old looks so cute for his first Halloween – what a super baby.

Pink and her clan took inspiration from The Greatest Showman and they've owned it.

The four of them look unreal and Carey Hart, in particular, is mighty fine in that pink dress.

This little blackbird enjoyed Halloween, just as much as his mum did.

Lauren posted the sweet snap of the pair of them, and we love the fluffiness of Liam's outfit – COSY.

Luna has found her prince in her daddy.

The little girl was dressed up as a princess and looks adorable on her dad's shoulders.

The standard of these costumes are seriously impressive – and put us to shame for our half-arsed efforts.

Now, we are off to tidy away the wigs and decorations for another year.
