SHOOR Halloween

Pause the Christmas music and dim those starry lights a bit — it’s time to get spooky for Halloween!

We know that this year, all the usual activities for Halloween are out of the question… again. Trick or treating in the neighborhood, or going to costume parties in different bars around the metro are all but a distant memory (for now). So with the annual fright night mere days away, you’re very likely wondering: What can we do for Halloween this time? How can I make Halloween fun at home? 


We know you’re on the hunt for some seriously fun Halloween ideas, so we put together a list of online activities to keep the spirit of the Spooky Season alive! If you’re a SHOOR regular, then you know that these online experiences are perfect for Halloween. But for newbies, let us tell you more!

Expert-Level Escape Rooms

These virtual horror experiences are not for first-timers or the faint of heart! With jump scares and other terrifying video content that will have you screaming in fear, plus riddles and clues that are tougher to crack, there’s no better time to try these Expert-Level Escape Rooms than Halloween!

Hilakbot TV on SHOOR

If you’re a Pinoy horror fan, we’re sure you’ve already heard about Hilakbot TV — a YouTube channel that’s earned a cult following for their hair-raising supernatural tales and terrifying ghost stories! The folks behind the brilliantly frightening Tagalog horror stories have partnered with SHOOR for three experiences that should be on top of your Halloween activities list:

SHOOR Original Mystery

From frightening noises in a closet to a downright creepy meet-the-parents scenario, SHOOR Original Mystery ups the ante of online VR games! Navigate virtual rooms and worlds to find and solve all the clues you need, so you can uncover the truth and unravel the big mystery. These experiences are guaranteed to keep you on your toes!

Take your pick from these five SHOOR Original Mystery experiences:

SHOOR Original Mystery The Feast
SHOOR Original Mystery Livestock
SHOOR Original Mystery Tick Tock
SHOOR Original Mystery Frenemies
SHOOR Original Mystery World War 3

Breakout Escape Rooms

Since 2014, Breakout has been offering chilling and challenging escape rooms that are among our favorite Halloween activities (other than Trick or Treat and costume parties, of course). We all miss the thrill of the escape, so it’s great that the country’s first escape room game is now online with SHOOR!

Whether you play alone or with friends, you can expect the same real-life spooks in a virtual escape room experience. Check out the SHOOR x Breakout library here.

An aside: Because all these experiences are virtual, you can play them with friends and family even when you’re not in the same room (or time zone, for that matter). Simply share your screen and audio and work as a team!

LF: New Hire

If you’ve already tried our virtual 360 rooms and you want something that’s even more immersive, then LF: New Hire might be what you’re looking for! It’s like Bandersnatch meets Sweeney Todd — a live-action online interactive experience with a theatrical twist — so it’s absolutely perfect for Halloween!

This is your journey through a hellish workplace, and your choices will get you the ending you’re either looking for — or one that you deserve. 

Helmed by director Joshua Tayco, LF: New Hire is the first professional production of Teatro 77, a production company of theater professionals who work on and off the stage. With their quirky, innovative work (also their “play” — wink, wink!), the theater collective pushes the boundaries of their medium, and the potential of the local scene. 

So if you’re looking for an at-home spookfest for Halloween — whether for yourself, or for your friends and fam — be sure to check out SHOOR’s fun, different, and awesome online experiences.
