The Psychotronic Film Society’s award-winning weekly series of underappreciated or downright obscure feature films from around the world continues with a rare public viewing of the 1975 Mexican horror flick “Más negro que la noche” aka “Blacker than the Night.” Virtually unknown in the U.S. (despite a low-budget 2014 remake under a similar title that was briefly released here in the States), it’s a creepy tale of four women who move into a house that one of them has inherited, only to discover that once the former owner’s black cat suffers misfortune, a series of unexplained murders occur in earnest.

Bizarre incidents, disembodied voices and all manner of ghostly, supernatural incidents plague the new inhabitants of the home in a film that is something of a minor legend south of the border, where some Mexican horror film fans call it the most terrifying old-fashioned fright flick they’ve ever seen. The PFS will screen the full, uncut international version, in spoken Spanish with English subtitles.
