Boo! Hollywood’s Great Thrillers

Let’s face it, movie-goers love things that go bump in the night; those moments that make the little hairs spring to attention on the back of our necks.

In this presentation lastinging a little over an hour, Larry uses PowerPoint images and film clips to illustrate the power of good filmmakers to scare us half to death.

And he’ll discusses why we like it so much.  Cases in point:  The moment in “Wait Until Dark” when the very bad guy leaps out of nowhere and the classic “Alien” birthing scene, of course.

But also moments of intense tension in Alfred Hitchcock classics (“Psycho,” “Rear Window,” “North by Northwest”) and others.

Open Mic Night.  Call it the longest three minutes in show business; an eternity for some, a breeze for the gifted few.  All the great ones started this way somewhere.  One-liners and stories running through their minds over and over or scribbled on notepads as they nervously await their turn.
