Add Some Extra Fright to your Halloween Week

Like an empty basket of candy, Halloween week would just be incomplete without scary movies. In order to help you get your spook on (with a student discount!), The Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting the fourth annual Scary Movies festival at Walter Reade Theater (65th between Broadway and Amsterdam).
The festival, which begins today and runs through Sunday the 31st,  will feature the world premiere of Village of Shadows on October 29th, as well as a post-screening question and answer session with French director, Fouad Benhammou. Village of Shadows is a modern-day supernatural variation of Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians, and according to the Film Society of Lincoln Center, it is “strong on atmosphere and light on gore.”

However, if you prefer more classic horror films, Scary Movies will also feature hair-raising revivals such as The Creeping Flesh, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors, Dead of Night and of course – Carrie. Tickets to the festival can be purchased at the Walter Reade box office. Three-film passes are $21 with student ID and individual tickets are $9 ($7 for matinee) with student ID. For more information about tickets and the movies being shown, visit the Film Society at Lincoln Center’s website.
