Ooooh, Scary! It’s The Halloween Edition Of The Big Screen!

by Jerome Weeks 25 Oct 2017 12:55 PM

Hollywood always releases a slew of new horror films around Halloween, but the Big Screen team – Chris Vognar, culture critic for ‘The Dallas Morning News’ and Art & Seek’s Jerome Weeks (filling in for Stephen Becker) – opted for digging up a pair of old scares, particularly because they’re getting special treatment from the Texas Theatre next week: ‘The Exorcist,’ which is actually being screened at the Majestic Theatre on Sunday, and the 1922 silent-film classic, ‘Nosferatu,’ which will play at the Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff, with the Austin band, the Invincible Czars, providing their own live score.


One of the most famous shots in horror films: the arrival of the exorcist (Max von Sydow).
