Whatever analogy you want to make, it's safe to say that Halloween is probably the best holiday for genre films. Sure, Christmas movies are classics, but for intensity, pop culture presence and general kick-assness, Halloween movies are probably the best holiday-themed films out there. From Hitchcock's intellectual brain-benders to Saw 14 or whatever version we're on now, there's something for everyone.
Which is also the case with movie screenings and events this Halloween in Indy.
The historical Irving theater is screening Young Frankenstein tonight - and from a 35mm print at that. AND they've got a midnight screening of a movie you might be familiar with on Saturday, too. Check it out.
Our good friends at the IMA have got The Bride of Frankenstein on Friday night, if you're in the mood for a goblin-inspired laugh.
And The Artcraft Theatre down in Franklin is featuring The Nightmare Before Christmas in their old-fashioned digs.
Then, of course, there's the party we're throwing on Saturday night - we're calling it Nightmare on Pennsylvania Street and you're invited. Get tickets in advance and join us for drinks, music, a costume contest and 50/50 drawing.
Whatever your plans - movie or no movie - have a Happy Halloween!
