Halloween may be weeks away but you can still scare yourself silly this weekend in Sentosa which not one but two fright-fests. Sentosa Spooktacular over at Fort Siloso brings back Asian horror with attractions inspired by international box-office hits by Thai entertainment firm GTH, such as 'Laddaland', 'Alone', 'Countdown' and its upcoming production 'The Swimmers'. 

Over at Universal Studios Singapore, the Minister of Evil takes over the theme park to bring four times the fear this year at the park’s Halloween Horror Nights 4. Spread over five weekends, this year's event features a collection of four haunted houses, four "scare zones" and even a circus freak show. Among the new haunted attractions is 'Jing's Revenge', a school "haunted" by the spirits of dead students as well as the psychedelic and scary ‘Jack 3-Dementia’, a 3D haunted house. 

Former Underworld member and globetrotting DJ Darren Emerson returns to Singapore this weekend. He spins at Kyo on Saturday.

For a spot of art, head down to the Substation Gallery where you can check out the punk photographs of Sheila Rock. On display are the photographer’s fly-on-th-wall snaps of the who’s who of the punk including The Clash, Sex Pistols and Debbie Harry. 


If you think you got what it takes to be a supermodel, head down to ION Orchard for the casting call of the third season of ‘Asia’s Next Top Model’.

Hong Kong Mandopop singer Khalil Fong performs at The Star Performing Arts Centre on Saturday.

Some of the funniest people in Asia are in town for the ‘Kings and Queen of Comedy Asia 5. Head down to the Esplanade Theatre on Friday and Saturday to hear Arj Barker, Kumar, Ted Alexandro, Jonathan Atherton, Jinx Yeo and Fakkah Fuzz dole out the jokes.

Don't miss British choreographer Matthew Bourne's groundbreaking and critically-acclaimed interpretation of the classic ballet 'Swan Lake' at the Esplanade. The performance is part of this year's da:ns Festival.
