We Are What We Fear: A Halloween Series

MUBI Special

It Follows

David Robert Mitchell United States, 2014

Today David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows kicks off our annual Halloween series encompassing horror cinema. Taking a healthy amount of influence from past masters, this excavation of trauma as experienced by the youth of American suburbia is one of the finest and most frightening films of the decade.

The Curse of Frankenstein

Terence Fisher United Kingdom, 1957

Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing unite for this Hammer studios interpretation (their first of many!) of the Promethean tale of reanimation. Refocusing towards the moral failings of Frankenstein’s experiment, Curse immerses one fully in the existential failure and dread of Mary Shelley’s masterwork.

Village of the Damned

John Carpenter United States, 1995

An American village is visited by some unknown life form which leaves the women of the village pregnant. Nine months later, the babies are born, and they all look normal, but it doesn’t take the “parents” long to realize that the kids are not human or humane.

We Are What We Are

Jim Mickle United States, 2013

A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules the roost with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost…

Season of the Witch

George A. Romero United States, 1972

Best known for ushering in the modern idea of zombies, the late George A. Romero applied an incisive level of social commentary in his underrated—even forgotten—non-undead films. Thus, the stellar Season of the Witch takes aim at the nuclear family and invokes witchcraft as an attractive answer.

The Babadook

Jennifer Kent Australia, 2014

A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son’s fear of a monster lurking in the house, but soon discovers a sinister presence all around her.
