UC San Diego will host a special screening of a black and white horror movie from filmmaker Christopher Mihm, House of Ghosts, on Halloween. The late night screening will take place at 10 p.m., Oct. 31 in the Seuss Room in the Geisel Library on UCSD's campus.
During this screening, the audience will assist in a live over-scoring of the film. The audience will provide additional sounds using a theremin and other odd instruments such as the thunder sheet, flex-a-tone, vibra-slap and waterphone. (Click on the link above to hear the eerie theremin.)
If you are a bit too frightened to watch the film, the library will have 1950's-era "fear shields." These horror guards may be placed in front of one's eyes for protection, at your discretion, explained Scott Paulson, outreach coordinator at the UC San Diego Arts Library and director of the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra, who is
leading the audience in the live over-scoring of the film.
See you at the screening.
