Sentosa Spooktacular 2013 Review

When I was 6 years old, a haunted house at the annual police day carnival scared me so bad I've stayed away ever since. Some of you will say "NOEL! YOU WORK ON A GHOST SHOW FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!". Well yes I do but real ghosts don't scare me as much. Heck even our season finale where we went on a hunt for the pontianak didn't phase me. But haunted themed events? That's a whole different story! Why oh why did I agree to attend Spooktacular?!

Well it starts like this...I attended the media preview night of Sentosa's Spooktacular. I told myself this would be a breeze. I'll show up, walk through the trails and have late dinner. I showed up alright. I had dinner too. But it wasn't a breeze nor could I walk through it. Hell no I couldn't! At one point, my brain told me to walk but my legs went "I ain't moving you dumb idiot!". So it took me a few minutes to sum up the courage to get moving. 




There are 5 trails altogether this year. I did two and left in a hurry. No there wasn't a family emergency, I wasn't sick nor did I have anywhere better to be. I was beyond scared! The first trail we did was 'Shutter'. That was terrifying. I can't remember much about this trail because I suspect my brain refuses to. The second trail I did was the 'Coming Soon'. If Shutter didn't give me a heart attack, Coming Soon would have done it. Chaba is one horrifying character. Everything about her sends chills down my spine. My girlfriend's sister was with me and she cried! A Thai woman that entered with the cast of 'Pee Mak' fainted halfway through it. Imagine that! She fainted!!! Apparently Shutter and Coming Soon are the top 2 scariest trails.


Sentosa teaming up with GTH is pure brilliance. This to me is a marriage made in heaven. On one hand you have a venue that is home to world class events and on the other you have geniuses that have made blockbusters such as Shutter, Phobia 1 & 2, Pee Mak and Coming Soon.

Here are pictures of Spooktacular 2013. More pictures are available here.


Chaba!

Chaba. Doesn't she look scary?! FML!!!!

It is a total nightmare when there are more than one Chaba's!


The expression on the cast of Pee Mak says it all!

    1. I don't know what to say to make you feel better. LOL! It's really good but really scary at the same time. I think she's fine. Didn't see her after they carried her out.
