    • Young Frankenstein (1974)

    • Date: 10/7 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Mel Brooks | Cast: Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman

      Plot: If you were to argue that Mel Brooks's Young Frankenstein ranks among the top-ten funniest movies of all time, nobody could reasonably dispute the claim. Spoofing classic horror in the way that Brooks's previous film Blazing Saddles sent up classic Westerns, the movie is both a loving tribute and a raucous, irreverent parody of Universal's classic horror films Frankenstein (1931) and Bride of Frankenstein (1935). Filming in glorious black and white, Brooks re-created the Frankenstein laboratory using the same equipment from the original Frankenstein (courtesy of designer Kenneth Strickfaden), and this loving attention to physical and stylistic detail creates a solid foundation for nonstop comedy.

    • The Fly (1986)

    • Date: 10/14 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: David Cronenberg | Cast: Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis, John Getz

      Plot:

      The Fly represents a perfect blend of Cronenberg's b-horror sensibility and his obsession with the overlap between man and machine, flesh and technology. It takes what might have been a fairly campy remake of a fairly campy horror film from the 1950's and elevates it to a whole new level. By giving it an intriguing science fiction premise with heart The Fly captivates the viewer as it winds towards its inescapable conclusion.


    • The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

    • Date: 10/21 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: James Whale | Cast: Boris Karloff Colin Clive Valerie Hobson

      Plot: This greatest of all Frankenstein movies begins during a raging thunderstorm. Warm and cozy inside their palatial villa, Lord Byron (Gavin Gordon), Percy Shelley (Douglas Walton), and Shelley's wife Mary (Elsa Lanchester) engage in morbidly sparkling conversation. The wicked Byron mockingly chastises Mary for frightening the literary world with her recent novel Frankenstein, but Mary insists that her horror tale preached a valuable moral, that man was not meant to dabble in the works of God. Moreover, Mary adds that her story did not end with the death of Frankenstein's monster, whereupon she tells the enthralled Byron and Shelley what happened next....
