Happy Thor-some Halloween!

31st October, Halloween. The day of the year when all are invited to cosplay their best or worst. Here's an assortment of Halloween horror characters associated with  Outpost to share some scares:


Predator vs. Alien!

Sith brothers Darth Maul and Savage Opress.

Some aunties think Jedi Master Plo Koon scary looks like scary demon. 

Davey Jones is in a crabby mood.


Remember Mumm-Ra from Thundercats?

Johnny and Mavis checking-in at Hotel Transylvannia.


Have a smoke with Hellboy?

Johann Schmidt / The Red Skull planning to conquer the world again unless stopped by Captain America.

Cult Classic Horror

Resident Evil's Nemesis with Jason Vorhess and Freddy Kruger.

Do you want to take this Chucky doll home with you?
Grim Reaper in anticipation of a blood bath!

Stephen King's 1974 novel "Carrie" gets another movie adaptation this year; the first Carrie movie was released in 1976. This time Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick Ass 1 & 2) plays Carrie, a shy high-school girl who discovers latent telekinetic powers and uses them to deadly affect to exact revenge on fellow students for humiliating her at the prom.

Carrie will be bloodying local cinemas on 7 November. Meanwhile check out this cool viral movie marketing video of a "live" telekinetic outburst at a coffee joint:

If planning to cosplay blood-drenched Carrie without being drenched in blood, here's an online video for bloodied make-up without the mess:

Or if you just rather be a Vampire (of non-glittery species), follow this make-up guide:

31 October 2013 is also coincidentally the release date of Thor: The Dark World in Malaysia, a full week before the US release!

Let's look forward to Thor and Marvel fans parading this Halloween day in Asgardian costumes, such as rival brothers Thor and Loki:

The Outpost Movie Recon Team (M.R.T.) will be out for some "Trick O' Treat" again this coming Halloween with shopping mall retailers offering a host of seasonal promos. The M.R.T. enjoyed tasty ribs and premium ice-cream at 30% off plus free smoothies last year about The Curve.

This year, the M.R.T. looks to "Trick O' Treat" at 1 Utama shopping centre to snag some goodies then journey to Asgard in IMAX 3D. TGI Fridays is already promoting their Halloween Costume Contest with RM150 of cash vouchers being offered as prizes.

If interested to join, stay tuned to updates on the Outpost Facebook Page counting down towards Halloween.

You may also want to dress up pre-Halloween as Cathay Cineplexes is holding an online Instagram contest for the month of October with movie passes being given away:

For some Halloween scares, Sunway Lagoon is holding Nights of Fright on 18, 19, 25, 26 and 31 October between 7.30pm to 10.30pm. Not an event for costumers though, as guests become the unwitting humans to be victimised by live horrors such as famous cult creatures and zombies from World War Z! Find out more at Sunway Lagoon website.

The Outpost MRT might just brave the ghouls for another recon mission. Standby for our report soon, or e-mail us if you like to volunteer to be part of our Away Team.
