From Grand Guignol to the Classic Horror Movies of the 1930s: Elliot Passantino's History of Horror Film, Part 1
Date:  Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Time: 7pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY

Starting in 1897 with the creation of the bloody, gruesome spectacle of the Grand Guignol in Paris, horror film historian Elliot Passantino presents a visual guided tour of the horror genre, from its theatrical roots into the advent of the silent film era, to the golden years of Universal Studios, Hollywood's trailblazing horror movie production company. Along the way we shall savor samplings from such works as Thomas Edison's 1910 adaptation of "Frankenstein," the European films that first defined a movie genre ("Caligari," "Nosferatu," "Vampyr"), the curious career of Lon Chaney ("The Man of a Thousand Faces"), Hollywood's first great movie star of the horror genre, leading up to the classic horror movie archetypes of the 1930s: "Dracula" (1931) and "Frankenstein" (1931), but also uncovering many lesser-known horror films from the early years of cinema.

Elliot Passantino is an artist, writer, director, film historian, and actor. His film "Season in Hell" has been described as "Holy Mountain" meets "Evil Dead" and the worst film ever made, depending on who you talk to. As actor Elliot has appeared in "Nude Nuns with Big Guns," "Seeking Victory," in his underwear in CBS's "The Good Wife" and as cowardly thug in "Dark Knight Rises" amongst other projects.
