Introduction to the film

In THE TERROR, the incomparable Jack Nicholson (in one of his earliest leading roles) plays Lt. Duvalier, a soldier in Napoleon's army. After separating from the rest of his unit and becoming lost, he catches sight of Helene, a beautiful woman walking alone along the Baltic Sea.

He follows her to a castle where he is introduced to Baron Von Leppe (played by horror icon, Boris Karloff), who appears to dabble in witchcraft and the dark arts. Upon this discovery, Lt. Duvalier sets out to rescue Helene -- but he soon finds out that she has some dark secrets of her own...

WEEK 2: Ugetsu
Introduction to the film

Ugetsu

"Quite simply one of the greatest of filmmakers," said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguchi. And UGETSU, a ghost story like no other, is surely the Japanese director's supreme achievement.

Derived from stories by Akinari Ueda and Guy de Maupassant, this haunting tale of love and loss--with its exquisite blending of the otherworldly and the real--is one of the most beautiful films ever made.

Mizoguchi won the Silver Lion at the 1953 Venice Film Festival.

WEEK 1: Häxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages
Introduction to the film

Häxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages (1922) – The Public Domain Review

Grave robbing, torture, possessed nuns, and a satanic Sabbath: Benjamin Christensen's legendary film uses a series of dramatic vignettes to explore the scientific hypothesis that the witches of the Middle Ages suffered the same hysteria as turn-of-the-century psychiatric patients. But the film itself is far from serious--instead it's a witches' brew of the scary, gross, and darkly humorous.
