So heres a tip from me: For a really cool trio of Halloween film fare, University of Colorado at Boulders International Film Series has it all wrapped up this week, starting tonight with Hausu, a 1977 Japanese horror film that eFilm critic J. Seaver called absolutely batshit crazy. On its tail, the cult favorite Dead Snow, complete with Nazi zombies, screens tomorrow (Its not often that I can program a Norwegian zombie film, so I really just couldnt help myself, says IFS director Pablo Kjolseth of the choice), and I Can See You, a more subtle work with an avant-garde, David Lynch-y look rounds out the mini-series on Friday. All the films screen at 7 and 9 p.m. on campus in Muenzinger Auditorium, and special promotions (including a chance to win free tickets to the screenings) are promised (tweet "@boulderifs halloween" for information). IFS Admission is $5 to $6; get info at www.internationalfilmseries.com.
