THE FILM LINE-UP:
SELECTION OF RARE FILM SHORTS FROM THE EARLIEST DAYS OF FILM
A rare screening of short films going back as far as the 1890s will show off some of the pioneering special effects that mark the very beginnings of horror and fantasy.
AU SECOURS! (1924)
Possibly the strangest comedy-horror short you're likely to ever see, starring Max Linder, one of the most popular stars of his era. Takes the standard "night in a haunted house" trope into surreal territory.
The first screen version of the classic novel, preserved by The Library of Congress and only very recently restored to its original screening quality. Knoxville will be among the first cities to view this horror gem.
***Original score composed and recorded by Ben Model.***
THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER (1928)
An avant-garde take on Poe's story with stunning visuals and a script by e.e. cummings.
***Screened with a live musical score performed and composed by Jason Boardman and Maggie Brannon.***
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925)
Our feature film is a silent horror masterpiece starring Lon Chaney in one of his most definitive roles.
***Screened with a live musical score performed and composed by Brett Winston.***
