But outdoor eeks are the theme in October 2020, a month that shaping up to be one of the most surreal and offbeat stretches in recent or long-term memory.
For drive-thrus of the Halloween-iest variety are popping up across the region, all to give local ghouls a safe and socially distanced taste of the holiday during the time of the pandemic.
And a fresh and frightful ghoulie go-to will setting into the Los Angeles Equestrian Center a week or so ahead of Halloween.
It's an atmospheric drive-in theater, and it will be hauntingly helmed by the subscription service Hulu, in celebration of its annual October event "Huluween."
Which means that you'll encounter a number of its eerie offerings in an on-site drive-in theater, gems like "Hocus Pocus," "Beetlejuice," and "Carrie" from 1976.
The four-night event, which will roll out from Oct. 22-25, will also spotlight the Los Angeles premiere of "Bad Hair" and feature "Books of Blood," a Hulu original.
