World Cinema’s Halloween offering is Guillermo del Toro’s brilliant—and brilliantly creepy—The Devil’s Backbone (2001), which is something of a companion piece to his Pan’s Labyrinth (2006). Since it hasn’t been that long ago that I reviewed this film, I’ll simply direct you to that review: http://avl.mx/0s.
Classic Cinema From Around the World will present The Devil’s Backbone at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29, at Courtyard Gallery, 109 Roberts St. in the Phil Mechanic Studios building, River Arts District. Info: 273-3332.
