The Greenhouse

Welcome to another installment of 31 Days of Halloween! This is our chance to set the mood for the spookiest and scariest month of the year as we focus our attention on horror and Halloween fun. For the month of October we’ll be sharing various pieces of underappreciated scary books, comics, movies, and television to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Movies Podcast!

the greenhouse

This film from the UK and Australia promises emotionally charged science fiction. The Greenhouse follows a woman as she travels back in time through a portal to revisit her childhood home, and precious memories after the death of her mother. 

Shorts Programs

night of the living dicks

Short film programs, particularly genre shorts, are easily my favorite thing about film festivals. This year’s Nightstream Film Festival offers 4 short film programs over the course of 4 days. 

Shapeless

shapeless

Shapeless, described as a Cronenbergian thriller, is a psychological horror film about a woman with an eating disorder. With subject matter that is both tender and true to life, I’m looking forward to seeing this horror spin on the topic.

Folk horror 

[Nighstream '21] Don't miss these movies at Nightstream

This year has reminded me of just how amazing folk horror can be. Nightstream is providing four movies from the genre. A mix of family curses, urban legends, and protecting land by any means necessary, the films look to bring the unexpected horror and fun these films are known for.

The Taking 

[Nighstream '21] Don't miss these movies at Nightstream

Alexandre O’Philippe has directed some great documentaries about classic movies. His latest film does not take on one film, but an entire genre. The Taking looks at how the American Western has contributed to social myths in the country.

Cosmic Dawn 

[Nighstream '21] Don't miss these movies at Nightstream

Films about UFO cults are an easy source of horror. There have been plenty of real life incidents that have shown just how deadly things can get. Cosmic Dawn is about a young woman who must go deep into one such cult in order to solve the mystery of her missing mother.

Nightstream takes place virtually from October 7 – October 13
