Join film historian Keith Crocker and the Reader Services Department as we host an evening of Mexican horror. Using a rare 16mm film print, Keith Crocker will show one of the classics from the golden age of Mexican horror cinema, The Witch’s Mirror (El Espejo de la Bruja), from 1962. This film will be shown in the library’s reading garden, drive-in style. In this delightfully creepy tale directed by Chano Urueta, a husband murders his wife, and years later her ghost emerges from a witch’s mirror to take her revenge. In conjunction with the movie, we will briefly discuss Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s horror fiction masterpiece that bedazzles the reader with spells, hexes, evil sorcerers, and cursed films, Silver Nitrate. Besides presenting the film, Keith Crocker will discuss other Mexican horror movie classics. Grab some popcorn and enjoy the show!
