Some of us have been counting down to Halloween since November. Well, October is upon us, so grab a bag of miniature candy and start the film fest. Not quite up to killer clowns or chainsaws? The Humboldt County Library is lighting up the dark with classic supernatural-themed films that will get you in the spirit without haunting your dreams every Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. (free).

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Decide when Charity Grella hosts broom-powered classic The Wizard of Oz (1939) on Oct. 3. Judy Garland may be all apple-cheeked charm but there's no shame in covering your eyes for the flying monkeys.

Does Kim Novak need the dark arts to win over Jimmy Stewart? Witch, please. But it's a great excuse for a comedy with Jack Lemon and a wicked cute Siamese cat. Yours truly hosts Bell, Book and Candle (1958) on Oct. 10.

Hell hath no fury like a woman burned for witchcraft. On Oct. 17, Bob Doran presents Veronica Lake as a witch exacting revenge on her accusers' descendant (Frederic March) via love potion in I Married a Witch (1942).

Finally, on Oct. 24, Frederic March is back, this time as the Grim Reaper taking a break from the soul-snatching grind in Death Takes a Holiday (1934), hosted by Michael Cooley.
