With the Support Of

What’s the scariest place you can imagine? Shark-infested waters? A dark cave? An abandoned spaceship? All have set the stage for scares on screen, yet the most common backdrop for cinematic horror is much closer to home. Actually, it is home.

Every second Sunday this summer, join us at O Cinema South Beach to see and talk about homes as key characters in American horror movies. From the iconic Overlook Hotel to Chicago’s housing projects, each of the four films represents a unique take on the haunted house and offers a closer look at the ways interiors, architecture, and other features of a residence can inspire dread. Stick around for post-screening discussions led by local experts to think together about what the movies have to say about the American way of domestic life—and how they find fear where we’re meant to feel safest.

Co-presented with O Cinema South Beach as part of The Wolfsonian’s Mark Mamolen program series on
American homes, investigating how the design of living space powerfully expresses individual personality
and social values.

O Cinema is proud to partner with The Wolfsonian–FIU for a series of special summer film screenings & post-film discussions in which we explore how the “Haunted House” theme has become a mechanism through which we view the inner spaces of society.

Sadly, the otherwise happy Maitlands, Adam and Barbara (played by Alec Baldwin & Geena Davis), now rest in peace after a freak-accident. Trapped in a strange limbo, the ghostly couple returns to the realm of the living, only to discover that the insufferable New York yuppies, Charles and Delia Deetz (played by Jeffrey Jones & Catherine O’Hara) along with their Gothic daughter (Winona Ryder), are now occupying their lovingly decorated New England home. Of course, sharing their beloved house with the obnoxious invaders is out of the question; however, the Maitlands’ haunting skills are pathetic, to say the least. Now, under those grave circumstances, only the manic, rotten-toothed veteran exorcist, Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), can rid the place of the unwanted guests; but, what happens if the cure is worse than the disease?
