Screenings in the Bay (Monday to Friday): Buzzard Hollow Beef, Blades of the Immortal, Day of the Dead, Keep Watching

Happy Hallows' Eve everyone! I hope your decorations are up and candy is waiting by the front door. That is, unless you like tempting the Halloween spirits...

We've got a lot going on in the bay area this week, with at least two one day only screenings landing on Halloween night. The first of which is a super advanced screening of Takashi Miike's new film, Blades of the Immortal, followed by a live Q&A with Miike at the Clay Theatre. The second is a special one night screening of Keep Watching. The Alamo is also screening the last of their George Romero Terror Tuesdays, Day of the Dead.

Of course there are also a slew of Halloween parties all over the city. Stereo Argento even temporarily moved to Tuesday in order to quench your thirst for blood and Italian horror!
