Sleep with one eye open, because DStv is bringing the big scare this Halloween! To celebrate the day, DStv will host its first ever Halloween Sleepover and Facebook Live horror event in SA on Tuesday, 31 October at Selby Hospital.

A competition asking for the most daring, fearless horror fan ran on the DStv website. The three hand-picked participants will be locked up for a night of grimy, ghostly, terror-fic fun!

Nomsa Chabeli-Mazibuko, General Manager for Marketing at MultiChoice said, “Following last year’s success of the DStv Halloween Night Run, we wanted to switch things up for our horror fans this year. We pride ourselves on being innovative and pushing boundaries – and the first Facebook Live horror event was just what we needed to push the horror-fic envelope to greater heights.”

Armchair warriors need not despair as DStv will extend the invite to them to join in on the fun by watching the live stream on Facebook from 21:00 tonight. DStv customers will also get a chance to help terrify the participants, by choosing thrills and scares for them.

In October, M-Net Movies gave you the Shock-Tober Festival ending on Tuesday 31 October (M-Net Movies Action, DStv Channel 106) which gave you the very best of thriller & horror– just in time for Halloween.

M-Net Movies delivers the M-Net Movies Bucket List Pop-Up channel 109 from today until Saturday, 2 December. These are 100 movies you need to watch “before you die”. For five glorious weeks, Premium customers have the chance to watch some of the most iconic and influential films of all time and experience the countdown to the coveted top 10.

All 100 movies will be available on the connected DStv Explora DStv Catch Up Plus and be available to watch online on DStv Now.

To keep the fear alive, customers at home can watch The Walking Dead, Mondays at 21:00 on FOX, DStv Channel 125, The Purge: Election Year, 31 October at 20:00  on M-Net Movies Action+, DStv Channel 106 and Devil, 1 November at 20:00 on Studio Universal, DStv Channel 112.
