Mike and the Movies: Spotlight on Horror

Join us for the first program in this new series,”Mike and the Movies,” led by Michael Smith, independent filmmaker, author and film studies instructor.

The horror film has long been one of the most popular and resilient movie genres. This special Halloween presentation will highlight various horror subgenres (psychological, supernatural and physical) through the use of clips ranging from German Expressionist masterpieces of the 1920s to classic chillers from Hollywood’s golden age to more recent films tagged with the controversial “Asian extreme” label.
