From the terrifying to the not-so-scary events The Inlander knows them all. If you’re looking for a place to catch a zombie flick or even a church harvest party to take your kids to, you’re in the right place. We list them all for you. But first we’ll start with the scary.
In the French film La Horde a group of police officers raid a house to find a criminal gang responsible for the death of a colleague when instead they encounter a group of cannibal zombies. Presented by the Spokane International Film Festival, this showing is both a fundraiser for the group and a chance to see a really awesome zombie flick. Shows on Friday, Oct. 29, at 11:59 pm. Cost: $5.
The following night features a zombie film of the local variety. Shot, edited and produced by local filmmakers, the film 28 Hours Later: The Zombie Movie, will premier on Saturday, Oct. 30, at 9 pm, at the Garland Theater. Lots of zombie creatures are expected to be in attendance.
Looking haunted attractions? Here’s a list of local places offering up scares for Halloween.
RIVERFRONT FRIGHT The Pavilion is now haunted. Now through Halloween from Wednesday-Sunday in Riverfront Park the goblins and ghouls will be let out. Cost: $8.
CREEPY HALLOW Northwest of Spokane, in Nine Mile Falls, the locale that is normally reserved for the annual Renaissance Festival becomes the haunted village in October. Full of crazy characters, this haunted attraction is certainly the most entertaining. While you wait, stand by the fire or get a Tarot card reading. Cost: $5.
SCARYWOOD Our local version of Knott’s Berry Farm Haunt. Some of Silverwood’s theme rides are now tours of terror, Thunder Canyon is a haunted house, and the normally docile train ride now travels to a zombie war zone. Cost: $25.
LION’S CLUB HAUNTED HOUSE This annually feared favorite is located on the corner of Post and Fourth streets in Post Falls. Open Tuesdays-Thursdays from 6-10 pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 pm-midnight. Cost: $6.
If you’re looking for something a little less scary Mobius Kids is having a Broomstick Bash on Sunday, from 5:30-7:30 pm. A Halloween Carnival will be at the South Hill’s Woman’s Club on Saturday, from 6-8 pm. The First Church of the Nazarene on Country Homes Blvd. will host a harvest party on Sunday, from 6-8 pm.
