This summer is going to get spooky! The Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) is bringing back its popular Terror Tuesdays movie series for some chills and thrills during the hot months.
And the best part? It’s only $2 for a ticket. You’ll enjoy some of the classics of horror cinema for only two greenbacks.
This Tuesday, kick back and watch one of the greatest vampire movies ever made – Nosferatu. This German film is an adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, and not one that was authorized by the novelist’s estate. But F.W. Murnau’s Expressionist film is a masterpiece of mood and lighting.

On June 11, you can see what Bela Lugosi was up to when he wasn’t playing Dracula. In White Zombie, Lugosi plays a zombie master who aims to transform a young woman into – you guessed it – a zombie. It’s great, pulpy fun. Click here for more information.
For the next Terror Tuesday screening, the series is skipping ahead a few decades. On June 18, CALS will be showing 1962’s The Brain That Wouldn’t Die. It’s a film about a mad doctor devises a way to keep body parts alive (after their owners die). As one does, the doctor then keeps his finance’s severed head alive. It’s a no-brainer, after all.

The final June film in Terror Tuesdays is Horrors of Spider Island. This is a 1960 film made by the German director Fritz Bottger about a talent agent and a group of girls who land on an island after a plane crash. There, they discover a massive spider web and much worse. Click here for more information.
Experience The Terror on July 2. This independent film, directed by low-budget legend Roger Corman, stars Boris Karloff and a young Jack Nicholson. It is centered around a French officer who discovers a woman who may be the ghost. Click here for more information.
Teenagers might be terrible, but teenagers from outer space are even worse. Find out for yourself by watching 1959’s Teenagers from Outer Space on July 9. This American independent film is about an alien teenager who searches for new life on a small planet called Earth. Click here for more information.
Wasps come out during the summer and can be the bane of one’s existence if you’re planning to spend time outdoors. Just imagine being transformed into a wasp. That’s exactly what happens in The Wasp Woman, a Roger Corman-directed film from 1959, which shows July 16. Click here for more information.
The Terror Tuesdays series ends with a horror classic that features one of the titans of horror. On July 23, test your endurance by watching House on Haunted Hill, starring Vincent Price. The story of a millionaire who challenges five people to stay in his haunted house for one night, this is a can’t-miss film. Click here for more information.
All of the films will be screened at the Ron Robinson Theater in Little Rock at 7 p.m.
