Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 3:11 PM

Creative Loafing film critic Matt Brunson and Dr. Mark Pizzato of UNC Charlotte will discuss ghosts in cinema on the Thursday, Oct. 11, edition of Charlotte Talks, with Mike Collins, at 9 a.m. on WFAE 90.7 (the show will be rebroadcast at 9 p.m.). Among the titles that might be discussed are The Haunting, The Innocents and The Others (pictured).


Dr. Pizzato is Professor of Theatre and Film at UNC Charlotte and the author of Ghosts of Theatre and Cinema in the Brain (2006) and Inner Theatres of Good and Evil: The Mind’s Staging of Gods, Angels and Devils (2010). He is presently involved with Spirits Rise: A Ghost Film Series, a free screening-and-discussion program running through Nov. 17. (Go here or here for more info.)
