This Tuesday, OCTOBER 17th we will be continuing Halloween Month with a reading of the classic film POLTERGEIST written and directed by Steven Spielberg.

936full-poltergeist-poster

POLTERGEIST centers around the Freeling family, Steve, Diane, teenage daughter Dana, eight-year-old Robbie, and five-year-old Carol Ann, who reside in the sleepy suburban town of Cuesta Verde Estates. Strange unexplainable events occur around the house when one night Carol Ann is summoned to the TV set. A sudden burst of green light is purged from the TV set onto the bedroom wall, causing the room to shake violently, prompting the now famous line, “They’re he-e-ere!” The Freeling family soon learns that the visiting spirits are not all friendly as initially thought. When Carol Ann goes missing they turn to a parapsychologist and an exorcist for help.

10/3 Scream

10/01/2017

This Tuesday, OCTOBER 3rd, we’ll be kicking off Halloween Month with a reading of the 1996 classic slasher film SCREAM.

Scream-1996-film-images-055d7aec-07ec-4568-87ae-a578918fa80

SCREAM is a 1996 American slasher film written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven. The film follows the character of Sidney Prescott, a high school student in the fictional town of Woodsboro, California, who becomes the target of a mysterious killer known as Ghostface. The film combined black comedy and “whodunit” mystery with the violence of the slasher genre to satirize the clichés of the horror film genre popularized in films such as “Halloween” and “Friday the 13th.” The film was considered unique at the time of its release for featuring characters who were aware of real world horror films and openly discussed the clichés that SCREAM attempted to subvert.

The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, “Rapunzel”, and “Cinderella”, as well as several others. The musical is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family (the original beginning of The Grimm Brothers’ Rapunzel), their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.
