As the cooler nights set in and the darkness creeps over Hong Kong this weekend you may sense an unnerving chill in the air. You might hear the distant screams of lost souls and zombies crawling out from the graveyards, and you may hear the howling of werewolves and the bubbling of witches’ caldron’s. There is spookiness around. All is definitely not what it seems. You can run for dear life or you can allow yourself to be bitten and transformed and delight in the disgustingly devilish fun as Halloween descends upon Hong Kong.
