World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: FRIGHT NIGHT

Some of the most beloved horror films came from a time before gory special effects, prosthetic limbs, hapless teenagers, and a reliance on cheap shocks. Whether they were the products of German Expressionism or early Hollywood creature features, they continue to intrigue and influence film makers and audiences, and many horror films from that more innocent era have deservedly attained cult status.
