The Landmark Loews in Jersey City is always a fine destination for pre-Halloween shivers, and this year the historic movie palace features a particularly strong line up for its holiday program. First up is William Castle's House on Haunted Hill (Friday, October 28 at 8PM), which is fab with or without Emergo... but it would be pretty spectacular if the theater was able to feature Castle's famed gimmick. Keep your fingers crossed. Next is the glorious Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein(Saturday, October 29 at 6PM), in which Dracula schemes to make the Monster more malleable by transplanting Lou's childlike brain into its flattop. Robert Wiene's surreal ground-breaker The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with live organ accompaniment follows (8:15 PM). All of these films made the cut of Psychobabble's 120 Essential Horror Movies, so they all come with the prestigious Psychobabble seal of approval.
