If you aren’t (too) scared and want to help find the source of these spooky manifestations and to close up the gateway, then come to the Museum on Saturday or Sunday – that is, if you dare!!!
A Zombie Apocalypse
On Saturday evening at Mont Hatley in Sherbrooke, you’ll run for your life – quite literally! A 5-km trail – merrily named the Zombie Apocalypse – gives runners the chance to pelt along as fast as they can, because they’ll be chased by none other than scary, scary zombies. Talk about motivation to go flat out!
Halloween for movie lovers
The Pit and the Pendulum and Plan 9 from Outer Space probably don’t ring a bell, but they were two B-movies released in 1961 and 1959 respectively. This double feature will be shown at the Salle Alec et Gérard Pelletier, in Sutton, on October 31, at 7pm.
A more contemporary movie (in fact it has just been released) is Les Affamés, directed by Robin Aubert. A zombie movie, which is already receiving numerous accolades, it features excellent actors and is highly entertaining and it was shot amid the beautiful landscapes of Ham-Nord no less!
Halloween at the Interpretation Centre in Granby
As you walk along the trails from the Interpretation Centre (CINLB) at Lac Bovin in Granby, you’ll meet some very strange characters. Don’t forget to bring a flashlight!
