Aside from the free outdoor cinema, The Mactan Newtown brings a plethora of exciting spooky adventures and fun activities day and night for the Halloween celebration this year. This 30-hectare township with a beach is poised to be the biggest business and tourism hub in Central Visayas that imbibes Megaworld’s phenomenal Live-Work-Play-Learn concept.

Showing at the Newtown Outdoor Cinema are three highly-rated picks:

It. Based on a 1986 horror novel by great master of horror fiction Stephen King, “It” is a mind-boggling classic film, set in a fictitious town of Derry, Maine, which follows the experience of seven children as they are being terrorized by unknown shape-shifting being (referred to simply as eponymous “It”), which often appears to be as Pennywise The Clown.

The Ring. The Ring is a 2002 American supernatural psychological horror film based on the novel of Koji Suzuki. The plot revolves around the urban legend of a cursed videotape, which victimizes anyone in a week after viewing it. This highest grossing film is famous for its bizarre and haunting image of a white lady with long black hair that lurks out the television set.

The Purge. In order to stabilize the American society, a new government was formed and the new founding fathers declared to hold an annual 12-hour event known as “The Purge,” wherein all crime including murder becomes legal while emergency and law enforcement services are shut down. The Purge is the first of the three American dystopian horror films written and directed by James DeMonaco.
