Halloween hangover? We’ve got a cure for you– one horror film serves as your hair of the dog, and one kidsploitation flick will loosen you up before a few buckets of cold water bring you back to reality.

What’s in the basket, DWAYNE?! For real though, you probably don’t want to see what’s lurking in that rickety basket. This is classic ’80s creature-horror right here, perfect for staving off Halloween withdrawals. Friday, Nov. 7 and Saturday, Nov. 8, midnight at Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg; tickets, $11

Light Industry calls this one  “a freewheeling romp about the violence of economic relations.” You know what that translates to, right? Communism. And Given what happened during this fabulous mid-term election cycle, it’s probably your last chance ever to see this gem. Property is a fictional story loosely based on the filmmaker’s experiences in late-’70s gentrifying Portland. A diverse community group decides to take matters into their own hands and buy up an entire block before their rent gets jacked up. Sounds like a great plan, right? Wrong. Ownership corrupts and bureaucracy entangles these commie hippies, and before they know it the dream is dead. Tuesday, Nov. 11, 7 pm at Light Industry in Greenpoint; tickets, $8 at the door

Hawk Jones
Before you freak out, rest assured I would never recommend a child’s movie, and believe you me Hawk Jones is no kid’s film in the traditional sense. Think Wondershowzen and you’ll sort of get a feel for what’s in store. Saxophone solos, heart-pumping chases, and performances of a lifetime are the stuff of this crime drama. Saturday, Nov. 8 through Wednesday, Nov. 26 at Spectacle Theater in Williamsburg; tickets, $5 at the door

Occupy the Farm
Neighbors in Oakland, a city that’s no stranger to social-justice activism, rally to save a chunk of public land for urban farming.
