This Halloween, join us for spooky films and shuddersome melodies. A herd of local filmmakers and musicians (including Rock Ross, Dan Janos, Thad Povey, Kevin Cunningham, Cecil B. Feeder, and Brian Godchaux), The Goat Family accompany their films with traditional and homemade instruments such as spoons, saw, washtub bass, and six-string steel guitar.

They’ll create live soundtracks for their own shorts, plus Entr’acte (1924), a disturbing surrealist film by René Clair, and Stupor Mundi (1999), by Rock Ross, which animates a danse macabre between the characters Liberty, Justice, and Death.

We’ll also screen these creepy features:

The Cameraman’s Revenge (1912), by the Russian animator Ladislaw Starewicz, is a devious tale of revenge and broken hearts, acted out entirely with insects! Skeletons of grasshoppers, beetles, and dragonflies come to life in this gripping morality tale.

The Vampire (1945), by Jean Painlevé, is an unconventional animal behavior film describing a bloodthirsty Brazilian bat. Includes excerpts from Murnau's Nosferatu and music by Duke Ellington.
