From Art House to Grind House and every shading in between, there is sure to be something for film buffs and horror aficionados of every persuasion.

The Art of Darkness film series will play not only through Halloween (naturally!), but continue throughout the holiday season.

We bid you welcome, to a world of dark shadows and beautiful nightmares.

INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS

When spores drift to earth from outer space, mysterious pods begin to grow and invade San Francisco, replicating the residents one body at a time; can anyone escape with their identity intact? Philip Kaufman’s superb, suspenseful 1978 remake of the 1956 classic of Cold-war paranoia expands the themes, amps up the horror, and is seriously creepy. It’s also a fascinating refraction of the original’s subtext, through the lens of the dark, fearsome undercurrents in late-1970s American life. Brilliantly cast.

THE THING

At remote station in Antarctica, an American research team is hunted by a shape-shifting alien, long-buried beneath the ice,that assumes the appearance and identity of its victims.As one after another of their number is violated and transformed, the team members must find out who among them is still human, and who is not, before it's too late. John Carpenter’s 1982 remake of Howard Hawk’s 1951 classic is legendarily gripping and gory, and it’s the second half of our ‘50s paranoia via the ‘70s/80sHalloween double feature!
