Prelude to Halloween

MUBI-Spezial

As Halloween appears at the shadowy distant end of October, we approach it with eager trepidation: A short series of very different kinds of horror movies, each exploring the darkness within and without in their own distinct ways.

Tanz der Teufel 2 - Jetzt wird noch mehr getanzt

Sam Raimi USA, 1987

Ausgelaufen

Only Sam Raimi’s ingenuity could manifest this remarkable mix of terrifying horror with uproarious slapstick to singular effect. At once a sequel and re-imagining of the original, Evil Dead II, with its masterclass in camp courtesy of Bruce Campbell, is an upgrade in every sense. Happy Halloween!

The Driller Killer

Abel Ferrara USA, 1979

Ausgelaufen

Our Prelude to Halloween series continues with this nearly uncategorizable horror film from Italian-American iconoclast Abel Ferrara. A mosaic of genres—a punk concert movie, a sex comedy, an avant-garde mood piece—The Driller Killer is an exacting portrait of artistic and financial anxiety.

Rabid – Der brüllende Tod

David Cronenberg Kanada, 1977

Ausgelaufen

Our Prelude to Halloween series pushes onwards with the requisite inclusion from the master of body horror, David Cronenberg. Rabid hails from a simpler time when Cronenberg made small films on tight budgets with an endless ingenuity for terror and political commentary.

Angst

Gerald Kargl Österreich, 1983

Ausgelaufen

Prelude to Halloween continues with this infamous cult movie from Austria that dives into the life and mind of a serial killer and doesn’t look back. Intimately confined to the perspective of the killer, Angst is a risky yet altogether complex vision of the human mind gone astray.

Trouble Every Day

Claire Denis Frankreich, 2001

Ausgelaufen

Our short, dark Prelude to Halloween series takes a turn from canonical horror to arthouse re-invention. Claire Denis makes her own version of a vampire tale, an elliptical, sensual film of disease and desire, loaded with mystery and tactility. With Vincent Gallo and a score by the Tindersticks.

Die Nacht der lebenden Toten

George A. Romero USA, 1968

Ausgelaufen

In the lead-up to Halloween, we’re showing a small series of very special horror films. With the great George A. Romero dying earlier this year, it seems most fitting to pay tribute and begin with his raging, subversive classic. Witness the apocalyptic beginning of the world’s zombie obsession.
