2018 line-up for
|The Woman in Black (1989 PBS TV movie)
Tuesday, October 2, 2018 - 7:00pm
Hillsdale Public Library

Hillsdale, NJ 07642
This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and
other genre related films.
After a lonely widow dies, a young lawyer is assigned to look after her
estate. When he arrives in the small town of Crythin, he finds that
few of the townspeople will have anything to do with him or his work,
and keeps seeing a mysterious woman in black. Eventually he begins
to investigate the strange history of the town and becomes ensnared
in its horror. A genuinely frightening tale with lots of creepy scares.
|Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter (2012)
Our alternative history theme of History That Never Was? was well represented by the film
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (2012). I had no intention of showing it, but some club
members had seen and enjoyed it, so I relented. I'm glad I did! It was certainly different,
showing a side of Lincoln that never existed (vampire hunting), but was fun nonetheless. It
reminded me of another period film portraying an alternate history - Pride and Prejudice and
Zombies - that turned out to be a fun movie. Our double digit attendance enjoyed the
experience, with most going to the Ridge Diner to discuss the film, among other things, until
the wee hours.
|High Anxiety (1977)
Our humor theme for the month of August was well represented by the Mel Brooks film High
Anxiety. Though uneven, it has some truly inspired scenes. Tributes to The Birds and Psycho
were excellent. Even Alfred Hitchcock himself, when Brooks screened it for him, enjoyed it.
Merriment continued at the Ridge Diner. Fun evening for all.
