Halloween 2021 - A Massive Movie Monster Mash

Monsters have been a part of folklore and literature for centuries and unsurprisingly found their way into cinema soon after its inception.  We are celebrating the long ghoulish frightening monster movie experience with a series of articles, workshops and a watch party on Halloween night! There’s something for young, old and a little bit creepy in our completely digital monsterlicious program.

Launch in and get started with this 1922 silent film Monster classic Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror.

Watch Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror (1922) online now.
