Vampires, zombies, ghosts, maniacs, werewolves, demons, serial killers - all are on display in this NFT season which celebrates a century of screen chills, from the European nightmares of Robert Weine's classic The Cabinet of Dr Caligari to the atmospheric Eastern scares of Hideo Nakata's spine-tingling chiller Dark Water.
The season kicked off on November 5th with a rare 3D screening of Friday the 13th Part 3, and runs throughout November and December, with a special introduction talk by Mark Kermode on Monday 8th November. Among the more bizarre treats on offer for the rest of the month are some rare 3D eye-popping delights from stereoscopic screenings of Andre de Toth's House of Wax and Paul Morrissey's Flesh for Frankenstein.
Also screening in November are Tod Browning's classic 30s Dracula, Mizoguchi's haunting 50s masterpiece Ugetsu Monogatari, and William Friedkin's The Exorcist in the recently extended edition with (not really surprising this one) a special introduction by the Exorcist saviour himself, Mark Kermode.
We at eatmybrains couldn't resist getting our tickets for House of Wax (3D) and Flesh for Frankenstein (3D) and a few other screenings, so book your tickets now, and maybe we'll see you there.
