Silent feature films deliver Halloween spooks

Saturday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. — BRANDON — The Brandon Town Hall hosts “Chiller Theater Silent Double Feature starring Lon Chaney” on Saturday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m., as part of a silent film series aimed at recreating  the full silent film experience, with restored prints projected on the big screen, live music, and a live audience. All these elements are essential to seeing silent films they way they were intended.

The annual “Chiller Theater” presentation in the Brandon Town Hall is just in time for Halloween, featuring two classic silent films that will creep you out. In ‘The Unknown’ (1927), Lon Chaney plays “Alonzo the Armless,” a disabled circus performer smitten with Joan Crawford. What he does to prove his love for her makes for an unforgettably twisted tale from director Tod Browning. A second Lon Chaney feature is TBA.
