Classic Horror Movies

At the Opera of Paris, a mysterious phantom threatens a famous lyric singer, Carlotta and thus forces her to give up her role (Marguerite in Faust) for unknown Christine Daae.

Gather some friends up and play a spooky game!

Cover for the Dread RPG


Werewolf – a party game for 7-17 players, where all you need to play is a couple scraps of paper. This is a great game to play huddled around a campfire in the dark. (Video instructions here.)

Dread – a role-playing game for more ambitious gamers where you create characters, then work together to escape a horror-movie scenario created by the host. All you need is some printed character sheets and a stack of totally-not-Jenga® blocks. (See an example of the gameplay here.)

Or you could always throw a Murder Mystery Party!

Read/listen to horror stories!

There are so many spooky recipes out there that you can try! Here are just a few recipes you could try.

Do some Halloween-themed fiber arts!スクリーンショット 2018-10-13 7.53.48.png

Do you knit? Maybe you prefer crochet? Maybe you like a bit of both?

Or you could always just try a regular craft that does not involve fiber. (I won’t tell if you won’t.)




Have a wonderful Halloween everyone! And don’t forget to come trick or treating at RML! We are open just for the holiday!
