Join us on a terrifying trip through time to the early days of horror films! Vintage Movie Night host Richard Hall (aka Hospital Patient Zombie) leads a journey through a collection of nine short horror films dating from 1896 to 1912, including a spooky dancing skeleton, the Edison Company's first film version of Frankenstein, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. You will hear the history of horror films with special guest scholar and horror film enthusiast Karina Wilson, creator of the http://www.horrorfilmhistory.com website. Watch as horror and humor collide more than a century ago!
Vintage Movie Night is sponsored by the City of Takoma Park's Takoma Park Arts cultural series in Maryland.
