Halloween at the Dryden Theatre

Posted by on Oct 12 2012 | Other

(Brian De Palma, US 1976, 98 min.) / Photofest

Halloween is once again upon us, and as is our custom here at Eastman House and the Dryden, we’ve rounded up another batch of classic horror films that are guaranteed to thrill and delight.
From the height of the Cold War come Them! and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, in which the twin plagues of atomic testing and mass conformity manifest themselves in the form of giant ants and pod people, respectively. Familial dysfunction has a negative impact (to say the least!) on the protagonists of Carrie and Psycho, while Vincent Price thirsts for vengeance in Theatre of Blood, and Audrey the Plant hungers for humans in the original Roger Corman version of Little Shop of Horrors. The golden age of made-for-TV movies brings us Bad Ronald and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, two classic, compact thrillers that are rarely (if ever) shown theatrically, screening in a doubly terrifying double feature. Finally, we’ll go back to the studio that started it all, Universal, for a special Halloween screening of the original Wolf Man. Join us, if you dare!
