(Oct. 10-18) The Nightmare Before Election
Halloween's on a Wednesday this year, so if you're looking to get a little more mileage out of your costume without throwing off your entire work week, there are a few events you should keep in mind: AFI Silver kicks off its seventh annual Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival today.

(Oct. 10-21) Jekyll and Hyde
