This year’s edition of Scary Movies kicks off with a bang—a Halloween evening blowout featuring a screening of What We Do in the Shadows and a vampire-themed costume party, and closes with a pair of rare ’80s gems: Amsterdamned and Angst. In between, we will be presenting the latest works from the French duo Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury and American duo Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, and John McNaughton; a trio of new first-rate creature features, Dark Was the Night, Late Phases, and When Animals Dream; the documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau; a few titles fresh from the Toronto Film Festival: Backcountry, Cub, and Spring; as well as retrospective screenings of The Pack and A Reflection of Fear.
