The DePaul Humanities Center’s fourth-annual Halloween event begins with an avant-garde “haunted house” featuring multimedia, interactive posters, installation art, and exhibits pointing to the horror of everyday life as well as the relationship between horror and the history of the humanities; continues with a screening of one of the greatest, scariest, and most semiotically-nuanced zombie films ever made, Pontypool; and concludes with a talk and Q&A with the film’s director and star. Horrific surprises abound!
