The weekend of Oct. 31-Nov. 2 is shaping up to be a frighteningly fun one for fans of thrillers, Benedict Cumberbatch, “Frankenstein,” festivals and the humble chicken wing.

Here are a handful of entertainments we recommend. Feel free to add more for other readers on the comments thread.

1 NT Live: 'Frankenstein'

Friday-Sunday at SIFF  Cinema Uptown, 511 Queen Anne Ave. N., Seattle (siff.net).

Pull up a front-row seat to the National Theatre of Britain’s production of “Frankenstein” – at SIFF. It’s a screening of the London stage show, filmed live, starring two fabulous actors you may know better as Sherlock Holmes: Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s “Sherlock”) and Jonny Lee Miller (CBS’ “Elementary”) alternating in the leading roles of Victor Frankenstein and the monster.

2 Dia de los Muertos

Saturday-Sunday at Seattle Center; Saturday only at El Centro de la Raza and the Phinney Neighborhood Center.

Welcome the spirits of ancestors and loved ones who have passed away at this annual celebration of life and death. You’ll find altar displays, music, food, sugar skulls and festivities at Seattle Center all weekend, and also at two neighborhood festivals on Saturday: One on Beacon Hill, the other on Phinney Ridge. Read Madeline McKenzie’s article for details on all three.

3 'Nightcrawler'
