Happy Halloween!!

Need a good, scary movie for the occasion?  Stop by Lane Library and get something really frightening!  We have modern classics, thrillers, suspense, supernatural, and super campy.  All are available in the video section of the main floor in Lane Library.

Let the Right One In - Scandinavian vampire, note: she doesn't glitter and she is spooky

The Orphanage - Spanish suspense/horror film

Ringu - Often named as one of the only *truly* scary movies

Or maybe you don't want something too scary, but still fantasy/dark, watch Pan's Labyrinth by Guillermo del Toro

The Devil's Backbone - horror/drama (also by Guillermo del Toro)

Gozu - a Japanese horror movie described as "sick" "twisted" "psychosexual" and "surreal" on RottenTomatoes

Lastly, for a cult-classic campy horror movie, watch Dead Alive - one of Peter Jackson's (who directed The Lord of the Rings films) first movies.  Gorey, funny, ridiculous, fantastic.  Not actually scary unless you fear New Zealanders.

These are just a sampling of what we have, stop by and browse the videos to see more.  Of course, there are always lots of good, spooky books in the library too!

RETRO POSTER - Good Books Will Satisfy Your Curiousity Too!
