Writer-musician-filmmaker-impressario Mark Pilkington provides an annotated tour of cannibalist horror film trailers.

Artist Vanessa Hodkginson presents “Going Native,” an original video work.

Actress and artist Amira Ghazalla performs “Murder Pudding,” an interpretive history of Egypt’s favorite and only dessert whose name and appearance is literally revenge served cold.

A bespoke cocktail with a frightful name will be available for purchase at the bar.
