Don’t party too hard this Hallowe’en, lest you end up like this guy!

Call it Goth Christmas. Call it the happiest time of the year. Whatever you call it, Hallowe’en is a magical holiday. And, contrary to popular belief, it’s not just one day.

Hallowe’en is a season.

With so many amazing events celebrating the strange and spooky around this time of year, it can be hard to keep track! So we’ve put together a list of film festivals, conventions, and other horror-related gatherings happening all over Canada! (Don’t worry, Americans! We’re working for something for you as well!)

Of course, we’re bound to have missed a few — if you know of an event that should be on the list, leave a comment with a link to the event, or contact us on Twitter @aoas_xx!
