For nearly 100 years, Paramount Ranch has set the scene for hundreds of movies, TV shows, and photo shoots. That includes a number of monster, paranormal, and other supernatural films and shows, from “The Forbidden Trail” (1932) to “Van Helsing” (2004), and episodes of the X-Files and HBO’s Westworld.

The family-friendly Halloween event will combine elements of film history and nature. Kids activities will include making fake movie blood and nocturnal-animal-themed crafts. Groups can choose from two self-guided hikes into the backlot woods, one which will family-friendly, the other for those looking for a little scare.

Other activities will include a screening of the 1966 classic Munster, Go Home, which was filmed at Paramount Ranch; selfies in the jailhouse; a spider zoo and bug trap; and ranger stations throughout the ranch grounds.
