Newcastle Castle have got all manner of spooky stuff going on in October, both theatrically and on the big screen. Read on for chills.

Newcastle Castle have been posting up plenty of ‘Sold Out’ notices of late, and their October programme has already seen a mad dash for their decidedly creepy offerings. One of the highlights is sure to be from Suspect Productions who will be holding more of their very popular murder mysteries. This time you’ll be at a concert party in 1945. Things are going with a swing until the VE Day celebrations get curtailed when a body turns up. Bring your own food and drinks and see if you can work out whodunit (5 & 6 October, 7.45pm, £10). Another ‘Must Not Miss’ is Timeworks Theatre’s ‘Frankenstein: A Gothic Creation’. This new adaptation evokes the terror of the novel itself and key events in the life of Mary Shelly, the woman that spawned it (18 October, 7pm, £13.50). Among film offerings in October are ‘Evil Dead II’ (20 October, 6pm, £9), ‘Young Frankenstein’ (pictured – 21 October, 6pm, £9), ‘Hocus Pocus’ (25 October, 6pm, £9) and ‘An American Werewolf in London’ (28 October, 6pm, £9). And before you ask, yes, there will be a ghost-hunting event from R.A.G. Paranormal Investigations who will also have a psychic medium with them (27 October, 9pm-1am, £50). Crikey!
