Special: Requiem for a Scream, Mon 10/31 @ 10pm - tune in if you dare

Design by Michelle Kim

Get comfortable and tune in...if you dare! Daniel Gilliam presents "Requiem for a Scream" with bone-chilling music from John Carpenter's "Halloween," Michael Abel's score for Jordan Peele's "Us," and selections from "Beetlejuice" and "The Shining." You won't be able to escape the grip of death in Franz Liszt's "Totentanz" or the mystery of Alexander Scriabin's "Black Mass" sonata. It's gonna be fun! And terrifying.
