Looking for some eerie entertainment this Halloween? We'd recommend checking out these four frightfully fun shows. 'Tis the season to be terrified!

1) Evil Dead - The Musical (Starvox Entertainment)

Chris Bond's popular Evil Dead - The Musical returns to Toronto for a limited engagement at the Randolph Theatre. Based on Sam Raimi's Evil Dead film franchise, the show follows a group of college friends who spend a night in an abandoned cabin in the woods after accidentally unleashing an evil force that turns them all into demons. Fans should consider finding seats in the famous "Splatter Zone," where audience members get doused in fake blood. Evil Dead - The Musical runs from October 31 to November 9 at the Randolph Theatre. evildeadthemusical.com

2) Frankenstein's Boy (Eldritch Theatre)

Gleefully ghoulish theatremaker Eric Woolfe (Madhouse Variations, Doc Wuthergloom) is back with a new show, Frankenstein's Boy, now playing in Toronto's east end at the Red Sandcastle Theatre. Directed by Marjorie Chan, the play tells the tale of Dr. Frankenstein's hunchbacked assistant, Frye, who falls for a kindhearted waitress (played by Kimwun Perehinec). Themes include death, dismemberment and everlasting loveyou've been warned! Frankenstein's Boy runs until November 8 at the Red Sandcastle Theatre. eldritchtheatre.ca

3) Rocky Horror Halloween Cabaret (Lower Ossington Theatre)

Lower Ossington Theatre's always popular Rocky Horror Cabaret is a safe bet this Halloween. Dress up and rock out to your favourite classic cult musical (stay for the Rocky Horror themed costume dance party after the show on Fridays and Saturdays). Seating is limited so book your tickets soon.

4) Halloween Edition of The Carnegie Hall Show (National Theatre of the World)

Laugh until you scream this year at the Halloween Edition of The National Theatre of the World's The Carnegie Hall Show on October 29 at The Drake Hotel. Colin Mochrie and Carly Heffernan will be joining Naomi Snieckus, Matt Baram and Chris Gibbs for a Halloween-themed improv spooktacular. Don't miss it! thenationaltheatreoftheworld.com
