Ghostly goings-on ahead of Hallowe'en
SPOOKY goings-on are cropping up all around York this month as Hallowe’en draws nearer.
Film students from the University of York are celebrating after winning a commission from York Maze to produce a short horror film for the centrepiece of the maze’s latest attraction, called See No Evil.
The film is produced by and stars students from the university, and tells the story of a group of young people who arrive at the attraction a day early but instead of finding it deserted discover some residents who don’t appreciate being disturbed.
Director Tom Day described it as a “fantastic opportunity to work on a real project”.
Meanwhile drama students from the Yorkshire Coast College will be taking on the role of various diabolical denizens of Dalby Forest, where visitors will be invited to go on a terrifying 40-minute Hallowe’en trail on October 28. Details on 01751 472771.
And anyone looking for an excuse to dress up has the chance to win a family ticket for York Dungeon thanks to the Park Inn in York, which is offering the prize to the best-dressed spook who tries out the Hallowe’en menu at the hotel during half-term.
