SPECTREFEST: Jerry Beck's Cartoon Spooktacular!

Animation historian Jerry Beck screams — err, screens a selection of strange, creepy Halloween-related cartoons using vintage prints in 16mm and 35mm that range from ghoulishly red Eastmancolor to gorgeously garish Technicolor. Prepare to be dazzled by animated witches, warlocks, goblins, pumpkin-heads, black cats and everyone from Koko The Clown to Casper the Friendly Ghost, as classic cartoon characters Oswald Rabbit, Flip The Frog and Popeye meet all the famous monsters of filmland. This selection of hellish tricks and horrific treats will more than satisfy your animated sweet tooth (err, fangs.) Be prepared, foolish mortals! DJ Auberi Zwickel (KXLU 88.9fm’s “Nosecats & Toescats”) will be here to spin tunes before the show.
