The Syracuse Cinephile Society will be presenting a Halloween Double Feature consisting of two Universal horror films this October.
With only two months left until October, film goers and horror fans could expect some of their favorite movies to return to specialty theaters. This October, on Halloween, the Syracuse Cinephile Society will present The Mad Ghoul and Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man for one night only. If you’re from New York and are planning on attending, here’s some information you may want to know.
Taking place on Monday nights at The Spaghetti Warehouse (689 N Clinton St, Syracuse), various classic films will be presented. On Monday, October 31st, the Halloween Double Feature will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET, but it’s requested that you arrive no later than 6:15 p.m. ET. Admission to the films is $3 for members, $3.50 for non-members. An annual membership is $5.
From Syrcacuse Cinephile:
THE MAD GHOUL (1943)
Director: James Hogan. Cast: David Bruce, George Zucco, Evelyn Ankers, Turhan Bey, Robert Armstrong, Milburn Stone. A demented scientist (Zucco) turns his assistant (Bruce) into a zombie in this first “zombie” horror film to be produced by a major studio (Universal).
FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN (1943)
Director: Roy William Neill. Cast: Lon Chaney, Jr., Bela Lugosi, Patrick Knowles, Ilona Massey, Lionel Atwill, Dwight Frye. What better way to spend Halloween than with two of Universal’s most popular monsters?
Here’s a question for Universal Monsters fans… The Mad Ghoul stars Turhan Bey, Evelyn Ankers, and George Zucco. These three actors would famously appear in films that were a part of the original “Monsters Universe” of films. Which classic monsters movies are they? Let us know in the comments below!
The Syracuse Cinephile Society, now almost forty years old, has a great Fall 2016 season. We’re very excited that The Mad Ghoul and Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man will be presented and if you’re in New York, this could be the makings of a fun Halloween night!
