Welcome to Morbid Planet’s seven days of Halloween destinations and fun!

To celebrate Halloween, everyone’s favourite morbid day of the year, Morbid Planet is exploring a different city each day and looking at what celebrations, activities and events they offer. We are counting down seven cities and who knows, maybe we will be looking at what your city has to offer next!

Our sixth destination is Toronto, Ontario that is located in Canada.

Halloween Haunt at Wonderland looks promising if your interested in a frightful experience that will make you crap your pants.

Their website boasts twenty haunted attractions and 700 monsters! This includes mazes such as the Forest of Fear, Spirit Manor and Blood Shed, along with scare zones and rides. They even have a couple of live shows such as the Devil’s Circus, the Dixieland Zombie Marching Band and the Vampire Disco. The disco interested me the most. Wonderland describes it as:

This party is just to DIE for! Our vampire DJs will get the music and your blood pumping in this high energy musical performance. Are you brave enough to bust a move with these vamps? It’s a dance party just for those willing to join, as music is played through wireless headphones that only the dancers can hear. Put on a pair, and enter the mesmerizing world of the Vampire Disco!

I found this video from opening night at Halloween Haunt and it gives you a little bit of everything they offer fans. If you check it out at the 5:49 mark, you can see the Vampire Disco in action.

Halloween Haunt runs from September 29 to October 31, 2018. Tickets can be purchased online at a discounted price of $35.99 CAD or they offer options for unlimited passes at a bargain.

If a Vampire Disco isn’t a big enough dance party for you, make sure to check out a Rue Morgue  Halloween “The Devil’s Playground.”

Join the staff and writers from Rue Morgue Magazine for the party of the year on October 27, 2018. DJ Jimi LaMort and DJ Saucy Miso will be lighting up the stage with beats all night. Tickets are $25 CAD to $100 CAD, depending if you want to spring for a VIP ticket or general admission.

It sounds like they have something for everyone:

Horror creatures, leather, latex, fur, cosplay, kinky, near-nude, zombie, stripper, burner, glow stick, porn star, movie star, time period, horror, naughty nurse / dirty doctor, kinky uniforms, ALL THE THINGS!!! Mandatory costume rule in effect for the city’s sexiest scary party of the season. We’ll show you why we throw the most notorious Halloween party in the city!

Once you are partied out, Horror-rama Toronto is just what you need to get over your Halloween hangover and runs November 3 and 4, 2018. I found this video a fan posted from last year.

I had never heard of this convention before, but their website makes it sound like so much fun!

Get ready to blow yer brains out, Toronto! HORROR-RAMA – Toronto’s ONLY straight-up HORROR and CULT MOVIE culture convention – is coming back  for its FIFTH and FREAKIEST year!

Special guests announced thus far are THE HOWLING and CUJO legend Dee Wallace,  AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON star David Naughton, SCANNERSand OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN star Louis Del Grande (in his FIRST EVER convention appearance!) and THE CRAZIES and SHIVERS legend Lynn Lowry with many more AMAZING icons of strange cinema TBA soon! HORROR-RAMA 2018, which once more sets up shop at the wild and labyrinthine art space and converted Buddhist temple at 918 Bathurst Street. Two levels of killer guests, vendors and attractions and a whole mess of weird rooms with cool stuff inside them!

In addition to the typically wicked array of awesome panels, screenings and endless rock ‘n’ roll, HORROR-RAMA 2018 will also unroll our FIRST EVER International Short Film Festival, featuring a tidal wave of amazing cinema from all around the putrid planet!

Buckle in, you freaks, geeks and fabulous fiends! Toronto is gonna get GONZO this year!
