Cocktails & Live set by DJ Mean Mr. Mustard at 1pm!

Inspired by Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House, filmmaker Robert Wise and writer Nelson Gidding (I Want to Live!, The Andromeda Strain) take the traditional haunted house yarn and weave it into a profoundly disturbing portrait of one woman’s mounting hysteria. Evidence of the power of pure suggestion, The Haunting creeps into our psyche without traditional horror tropes: no monsters, no ghosts, no gore–just production designer Elliot Scott’s (Labyrinth) claustrophobic, Rococo interiors, shot on an early 30mm anamorphic, wide-angle lens. Leaving viewers as confounded as the fragile Eleanor (Julie Harris), and focused as much on the confusion of physical interiors as the imbroglio that is our brittle mental interiority, this early entry in the House of Psychotic Women canon explores how, when we presume to invade a house, it might also invade us.

Dir. Robert Wise, 1963, 35mm, 112 min.

Not only is James Whale’s 1935 The Bride of Frankenstein one of the first horror sequels, but it is the first sequel to arguably surpass the quality and esteem of its genre-defining (and also Whale-directed) predecessor. Really the second half of Mary Shelley’s seminal Gothic horror novel, Whale’s film departs from the original text significantly, including the addition of one of cinema’s first not-so-thinly veiled homosexual characters in the guise of the wicked and brilliant Dr. Pretorious (Ernest Thesiger). Boris Karloff is back in the neck bolts, aided by the ever-beguiling Elsa Lancaster as the titular, shock-haired bride–also an icon of movie monsterdom–but the real star of the show is Whale’s wit and playfulness with what would normally be a standard cobwebs and crypts affair. From the sets to the score to the side characters, Bride of Frankenstein chills and delights nearly a century after its release; a must-see for Halloween–or any season, for that matter.

Dir. James Whale, 1935, 35mm, 75 min.

A Freudian, intensified take on Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw—adapted with the help of Truman Capote—Jack Clayton’s The Innocents is a genuinely terrifying meditation on repressed sexuality and the inevitability of children’s loss of innocence. Directed with elegance, nuance (rare for a film in the “evil child” canon), and a remarkable handle of atmosphere, mood, and setting, The Innocents carries the torch of James’s trademark evocative (and sometimes terror-inducing) ambiguity—so far, in fact, that the final scene resulted in an X-rating upon release in 1961.

Dir. Jack Clayton, 1961, DCP, 100 min.

In a 1940s Hollywood deeply beholden to a strictly-enforced Hays Code, RKO somehow thought it safe to approach a script in which an exotic, sensual woman’s every carnal desire manifests as a literal animal–one with killer instincts. Filed close to the Invasion of the Body Snatchers end of your local video store’s “Noir” section, Jacques Tourneur’s Cat People teases with subverted sexuality and allusions to potential danger without ever quite tipping into glorified obscenity; there’s the spirit of an exploitation film hidden somewhere within Irena’s (played with prowling prowess by the gorgeous Simone Simon) deep fear of her own corporeal power. Even with suppressed erotic notions, Cat People exists as a thoughtful inquiry into how a proper woman “ought to” sexually express herself. With harsh shadows and dramatic lighting somehow executed for under $150,000, Tourneur’s dangerous, slightly sleazy horror-noir still titillates and terrifies over 70 years later.

Dir. Jacques Tourneur, 1942, 16mm, 73 min.
