Halloween is on a hard-to-party Monday this year, so what are you going to do? RiffTrax to the rescue. The professional movie enhancers are here to talk you through the recently restored '60s flick Carnival of Souls, directed by the mortal Herk Harvey. The story is an atmospheric (some would say "slow moving") psychological thriller about Mary. She's a regular young woman who crashes her car into the river one fine day. She emerges alive, but changed. Mary leaves town and starts a new life in Utah, but it seems like someone is following her: She keeps spotting the same gaunt man in a nice suit wherever she goes. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett mine this quiet cult classic for spooky comic gems in a live broadcast at 7 p.m. Thursday, October 27, and then make the same jokes in a taped rebroadcast at 7:30 p.m. Monday, October 31. You can see it both times at Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 Cine (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $14.
