There is a lull in Los Angeles Halloween activity this week. Most of the big guns have already begun, and the smaller events and attractions will not open their crypts until the middle of the month. This means that, if you have been good boys and girls who followed our advice to hit Knotts Scary Farm, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, etc at your earlier opportunity, then you now have a chance to enjoy some other October activities:
- A 12-hour horror marathon takes place at the New Beverly Cinema on Saturday, beginning with a 1980s slasher flick THE BURNING, which is graced by an effective Rick Wakeman score. See below for list of titles.
- A 1-1/2 hour walking tour of Hollywood Forever Cemetery (6000 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood) is happening this Saturday, courtesy of the Art Deco Society. The tour is not scary, nor exactly Halloween-oriented, but the location will appeal to horror fans. Call (323) 469-1181 for info. Tours are every half hour from 10:00am to noon.
- The double bill of TOY STORY and TOY STORY 2 – now upgraded to 3D – continues at El Capitan Theatre (6838 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood). Call 1-800-347-6396 for tickets. Screenings continue through October 15.
The films screening at the New Beverly’s All-Night Horrorthon are:
- Dog Soldiers 7:30pm

- House by the Cemetery 11:20pm
- Secret Movie (??) 1am
