“Empty meadow enveloped by fog with a faint murmur of the slow-moving river in the background. Spooky fall evening, just like from the Carpenter or Romer movies, with songs of Misfits blasting from the nearby club. Suddenly, evil hordes start to emerge from the fog: zombies, witches, bloodthirsty nurses and many other monsters. They enter a club called Močvara where DJ Mario Kovač puts on a horrifyingly good selection of trash, punk, metal, RnR and music hits from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s… The apocalyptic scenes of the slasher movies on the walls of the club alternate with the strobe light effects at one of the best and most unusual Halloween parties of the past couple of decades. Come see why hundreds of people are returning back to the scene of crime time and time again,” states the announcement of the Močvara Halloween party, inviting all looking for a terribly good time to come by and join the scariest party in town.
On the second ‘floor’ in Pogon Jedinstvo hall, you can catch a cabaret show (from 9 pm – 10.30 pm) or enjoy the best of the scary music and horror hits from popular movies of the horror genre such as the Night Of The Living Dead, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Psycho, Bride Of Frankenstein, Scream, Halloween, Assault on Precinct 13, The Fly, Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre etc. WolfBad Squad aka Mr Wolf and Mr Bad will make sure the party rages on until the early morning hours (from 10.30 pm – 6 am).
