28 DAYS LATER (2002)OCTOBER 2 @ 7PMFour weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary. Kinetically directed by Danny Boyle, 28 DAYS LATER is both a terrifying zombie movie and a sharp political allegory. Starring Brendan Gleeson, Cillian Murph, and Naomie Harris. (113min, R)
SHAUN OF THE DEAD (2004)OCTOBER 9 @ 7PMA man’s uneventful life is disrupted by the zombie apocalypse. SHAUN OF THE DEAD cleverly balances scares and witty satire, making for a bloody good zombie movie with loads of wit. (100min, R)
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)OCTOBER 16 @ 7PMFive youths on a weekend getaway fall prey to a depraved family of cannibals. Tobe Hooper’s masterpiece of subversive horror defined the genre of horror through a chilling depiction of depravity and dementia. (83min, R)
THE THING (1982)OCTOBER 23 @ 7PMHorror-meister John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York) teams Kurt Russell’s outstanding performance with incredible visuals to build this chilling version of the classic THE THING. In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Once unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror and becomes one of them. (109min, R)
PSYCHO (1960)OCTOBER 31 @ 7PMAlfred Hitchcock’s landmark masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. When Marion Crane, spectacularly played by Janet Leigh, ends up at the Bates Motel after making off with $40,000 cash, there’s hardly a film fan alive who doesn’t know what happens next. First a private detective, then Marion’s sister, search for her as the horror and suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed. (109min, R)
