On October 31st at 10:00 p.m. in the Seuss Room, Geisel Library at UC San Diego, the West Coast premiere of a black & white horror movie from Midwest-based filmmaker Christopher Mihm, “House of Ghosts.”

Audience will assist with live over-scoring, providing additional horror sounds: play on a real Theremin, if you dare! Also: coax some spooky sounds from ritual percussion instruments and orchestral oddities such as the thunder sheet, flex-a-tone, vibra-slap, waterphone, etc. This film will be screened in Esperanto! (A frighteningly good linguistic educational opportunity.)

Also, celebrating some of the gimmicks of 1950’s era spooky movies, “fear shields” will be issued for those too squeamish to watch every frame of the film. These horror guards may be placed in front of one's eyes for protection, at your discretion.

About the filmmaker:
Christopher R. Mihm is the writer, director, and producer of feature-length black-and-white films, inspired by 1950’s icons such as William Castle and drive-in cinema. More information about the “Mihmiverse” of Christopher Mihm’s films is available at: http://www.sainteuphoria.com

Your host at this screening is Scott Paulson, outreach coordinator at the UC San Diego Arts Library and director of the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra, who is leading the audience in the live over-scoring of the film, utilizing a collection of Theremins, ritual percussion instruments and orchestral oddities.

Location: University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive La Jolla, CA 92093 Google Maps
