Dalhousie Cult Classics Club presents:

The Babadook!
October 22nd, 7:30pm
Room 4106 in the Killam (across from the elevator on the 4th floor)


"Essie Davis stars as Amelia, a put-upon nurse whose perpetually difficult son Sam becomes convinced that a storybook monster called Mister Babadook is haunting their house. This is a horror movie, so he's bang on about that. But THE BABADOOK is also a singular and unique thing; a fresh spin on a well worn genre from the kind of directorial voice (a middle-aged Australian woman) and about material (the difficulties of single-motherhood) that generally don't get play in the horror genre. But man, they should, cause BABADOOK is the goods."


 
THE FUNNIEST MOVIE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN

Presented by the King's Early Modern Studies Society and the King's Foreign Film Society there will be a spooky screening of the hilarious 'What We Do in the Shadows' on Monday October 26th in Alumni Hall (King's campus) at 7pm.

"The creators of Flight of the Conchords present a "blood good fun" story of an endearingly unhip quartet of vampire roommates living in modern New Zealand. Watch as a documentary crew films their nightly routine of quibbling over chores, struggling with new technologies and fashion, cruising clubs for ladies, and antagonizing the local werewolves (not swearwolves!)."

FEATURING
- An introduction by vampire hunter Dr. Katheryn Morris 
- Non-blood snacks
- A Post Mortem with non-blood libations following the film
- dope posters by 
Jesse Hiltz

We'll leave you to do your dark bidding on the internet - hope to see you there :)

~Once More With Feeling~ 
This is Buffy the Vampire Slayer's one and only musical episode and you can sing along! When a demon compels Buffy and her friends to break out into song, the vampire slaying team must join forces to solve this musical mystery. 

~Hush~
Emmy award nominated and known as one of Buffy the Vampire Slayer's spookiest episode ever, Hush features group of fairy tale ghouls named "The Gentlemen" who come to town and steal everyone's voices. Everyone must find ways to express their feelings about each other and keep some semblance of control as the town descends into chaos.

We encourage everyone to dress up for the night as costume and trvia prizes will be awarded!

If Buffy's not your thing, fear not! There will be so many snacks and Halloween crafting stations to keep you occupied as well as musical intermission, so let us know what we should play! 

ACCESSIBILITY: The episodes will be played with closed caption subtitles. The event is held in a building with automatic doors, elevators, and wheelchair-accessible and gender inclusive washrooms. Please contact dalout@dal.ca or post here if you have specific accessibility questions or needs!
