Belcourt - Nashville's Nonprofit Cinema

Weekend Classics

The recent resurgence in stigma-busting arthouse horror movies has opened the door for a fresh investigation of the political and cultural impact of one of the most critically maligned film genres. This October, we feature a collection of horror’s canonical treasures, loosely paired with more modern riffs on similar themes. By showing these films outside of their typical midnight or one-off cult screenings, we hope to ignite new conversations and help this popular genre join the ranks of more traditional critically-respected offerings.



PSYCHO

PSYCHO

Alfred Hitchcock’s genre-defining slasher masterpiece about an on-the-lam embezzling secretary who happens upon a motel run by a very peculiar young man.

ALICE, SWEET ALICE

ALICE, SWEET ALICE

When a young girl (Brooke Shields) is brutally murdered during her first communion, her disturbed and withdrawn older sister (Paula E. Sheppard) becomes the main suspect in this criminally underrated, twisty Hitchcock riff by director Alfred Sole.

CARNIVAL OF SOULS

CARNIVAL OF SOULS

A tragic drag racing accident leaves a sole survivor, Mary Henry, who pulls up roots and takes a new job to distance herself from the traumatic event. Despite the move, she is haunted by visions of a man who seems to be beckoning her to an abandoned carnival at the edge of town.

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

One, Two, Freddy’s Coming For You… Nancy and her peers are having bad dreams. A clawed maniac with severe facial scarring haunts them in their sleep, picking them off one-by-one as the nightmare crosses into reality.

THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES

THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES

A doctor, scientist, organist and biblical scholar, Anton Phibes (Vincent Price) seeks revenge on the nine doctors he considers responsible for his wife's death.

THE HAUNTING

THE HAUNTING

The stories you’ve heard about Hill House? They’re all true. For 90 years, it has stood alone, isolated, patient. Now a group of four find themselves in a trap of their own making; a nightmare maw of wood and stone and secrets, slowly closing around them.

THE FOG

THE FOG

The last time the fog rolled in from sea, just off Spivey Point, six lives were lost, and the fledgling town of Antonio Bay was born from the wreckage of that tragedy. But now, 100 years later, the fog has returned, bringing with it something unspeakable.
