Horror and humor needn’t be mutually exclusive. As Robert Bloch, the author of Psycho, once observed, “Both … require the same distorted conception of reality to be effective.”
The Library observes Halloween by screening five films in October that effectively combine the two, dishing out chills with a wink. Critics were appreciative; all earned better than 80% positive reviews as tracked by the website Rotten Tomatoes.
