(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. Nine nights of more than 50 shorts and features promise everything from a hysterical Canadian zombie comedy to a terrifying anthology about Nazi zombies to a documentary about zombie makeup.

(Oct. 10-21) Jekyll and Hyde
The charming Dr. Jekyll and sinister Mr. Hyde get dressed up a little differently at Arlington's Synetic Theater through October 21st. Jekyll and Hyde sets the action of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic in modern-day America where things are very dark, very physical, and totally wordless.

Music: "Up We Go Now!" by Dirty Bourbon River Show
