Escape To The Movies This Weekend

This might just be my inner Larry David speaking, but Halloween (and most celebratory holidays like the 4th of July, New Year’s Eve, etc) are usually pretty horrible. That’s not to say I dislike Halloween. On the contrary, it might be my favorite holiday, consisting of my three biggest passions in life: fear, candy, and pretending to be someone else. However, adulthood seems to mean the pressure of finding “something fun to do” and wearing a costume that will both please your aesthetic spooky sensibilities and/or entice a mate, which itself is always a waste. Anyhow, for those of you that don’t feel like finding yourself surrounded by humans but also desire not to spend another weekend drinking whiskey alone watching Eyes Without a Face in bed, here are some wonderful films being shown around the city so you can keep to yourself, while escaping from yourself. Or, you know, if you can find a person that wants to go watch Nosferatu with you at midnight, good for you.
