Spooky cinema: five scary movie recommendations for Halloween home viewing

With COVID-19 making all but the smallest get togethers extremely ill advised, an at-home scary movie marathon might be the best way for adults to celebrate Halloween this year. But with so many great horror movies to choose from, both classic and contemporary, it's hard to settle on only a few.

Supernatural city

Part three of a three-part series looking at the sinister and spooky side of Calgary's haunted housing history.

Serving as a place of work for more than 140,000 Calgarians, it may go unnoticed that the majority of this city's historic buildings also reside downtown.

And, along the way, many of these same structures have managed to pick up a story or two surrounding their long - and sometimes eerie - history.

Touring Heritage Park's eerie abodes

The accounts all sound like something out of the classic ghost story: lights that turn on with no electricity; windows and doors that seem to open and close themselves; even sightings of a long-dead figure - returned from beyond the grave for reasons unknown – in an upstairs window.

Ghost walk reveals historic Calgary neighbourhoods' most haunted residents

It's chilly. Toque weather – a tad dreary, with not a star in the sky.

The perfect night, really, for a ghost walk in the historic Calgary community of Inglewood.

Closely situated to Fort Calgary, Inglewood was once home to the city's first main street in 1875. Originally known as East Calgary, or Brewery Flats, the name Inglewood was bestowed upon the community in 1911 by Col. James Walker.
