McLib Movie Club: October Picks

Film buffs, rejoice! We’re kicking off our monthly movie club (building off our 2020 program, Book to the Future) and what better time to start than October? This month’s picks are in the horror realm, one of our most popular genres. Join us at 7pm Thursday, October 21st to discuss these picks, as well as hear more about other new and popular DVDs in our collection. Have you watched something great lately? We’d like to hear about it!

Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror (2019)

Via Shudder: Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced them, Horror Noire traces the untold history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book, HORROR NOIRE will present the living and the dead, using new and archival interviews from scholars and creators; the voices who survived the genre’s past trends, to those shaping its future. Find it in our catalog here.

We also have a Letterboxd list of films mentioned in this documentary that are available for checkout. View the list here.

Candyman (2021)

Via IMDB: A sequel to the horror film Candyman (1992) that returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began.

Coming to our catalog soon! Give us a call to put it on hold.

Blood Quantum (2019)

Via Shudder: The dead are coming back to life outside. But in the isolated Mi’gmaq reserve of Red Crow, the indigenous inhabitants are immune to the zombie plague. Traylor, the tribal sheriff, must protect his son’s pregnant girlfriend, apocalyptic refugees and reserve riffraff from the hordes of walking white corpses. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

Find it in the catalog here.
