Halloween might be over but, depending on who wins the presidential election, the horror might continue. The Contemporary Arts Center can help amplify your feelings of anxiety and unease with the latest installment of its Historical/Horror Film Series, which is a double-feature that pairs one film that explores different elements of horror with another in the documentary or historical fiction genre. This week, the first flick shown is Hxan: Witchcraft through the Ages at 6:30 p.m. This 1922 documentary uses dark humor to explore the concept that witches of the Middle Ages suffered the same hysteria as turn-of-the-century psychiatric patients. After that light fare, the CAC will screen Cat People at 8:25 p.m., the sexy and stylish 1942 horror film that stars Simone Simon as a fashion illustrator in New York who believes an ancient curse will transform her into a panther when her feelings of passion or jealousy are aroused. Meow! The films will be shown in the he CAC Performance Space. The event is free for CAC members; cost is $7.50 for non-members; $6.50 for seniors; and $5.50 for students.
