Not every Halloween event is meant to scare you to death.
There are some haunted houses on our list, but there are also family-friendly events and scary movie showings.
Here's our top picks of LA events this year:
1. Halloween Horror Nights
At Universal Studios' annual Halloween events, you can face familiar enemies and be scared by big-budget scares and famous horror movie characters.
You'll be able to walk through several scare zones and mazes, which include ones based on the Weeknd (yes, the "Blinding Lights" singer), Halloween, The Black Phone, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and the iconic trio of the Wolf Man, Dracula, and the Mummy.
In the past, people who went had to sneak through a Victorian house and go on a bounty hunt like in the movie Blade Runner.
Now, this well-known immersive horror theater event is coming back to L.A. for an event in a 147-year-old mansion where you have to stop a 1970s cult from taking over.
What could be better than watching scary movies in a cemetery on Halloween?
The Thing and Carrie will be shown by Cinespia at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in October. On Halloween weekend, there will also be a gothic masquerade at the Los Angeles Theatre, where Bram Stoker's Dracula will be shown.
4. The Rooftop Movie Club
The people who know the most about watching movies outside on rooftops are waking up the spirits in early September by showing some of the best Halloween movies at their rooftops in El Segundo, the Arts District, and Downtown Los Angeles.
As Halloween gets closer, there are more and more chances to see movies like Hocus Pocus, Get Out, Halloween, Coco, and Beetlejuice, among others.
5. Movies about street food
Almost every weekend in October, the park-hopping outdoor film series will show Halloween movies.
Hocus Pocus will be shown in Manhattan Beach, Edward Scissorhands in Pasadena, Twilight in Culver City, Beetlejuice in Griffith Park, The Nightmare Before Christmas in the Pacific Palisades, and Psycho in Chinatown.
It will also show A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream back-to-back at DTLA's grand Million Dollar Theater.
At this Halloween-themed dog-friendly festival at L.A. State Historic Park, you can buy treats for your dog and get them a massage or a professional portrait.
You'll have to pay to get in, but your furry friend can come for free—just make sure they're dressed up so they can enter the contest. Pup Culture and A Wish for Animals will be there to help you adopt a new best friend (a portion of tickets will benefit both organizations).
