Halloween movies

October 22, 2009|Kenneth Turan

Halloween's fans are legion, so its no wonder that local theaters can't wait until the 31st to celebrate the ghoulish holiday. On Sunday and Monday, the venerable New Beverly will show "Spine Tingler!," an excellent biopic on legendary horror-meister William Castle. And on Saturday, the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale will do more than just screen the 1963 classic "The Haunting," starring Claire Bloom and Julie Harris, at both 2 and 8 p.m. Before each screening, it will present Michael J. Kouri, described as the theater's "resident psychic medium," to talk about the place's haunted history. Go ahead, scare yourself silly.
