Because it is October and Halloween is the greatest holiday, LAist is kicking off this month's festivities with a movie that we're pretty sure sets the tone for Shocktober in Los Angeles.

At 7:30 PM, see a special sneak preview of The Hillside Stranger at the Egyptian Theatre. Based on the real events surrounding the gruesome murders that took place right in our own backyard 30 years ago, this fact-based dramatic reinterpretation stars C. Thomas Howell as Kenneth Bianchi and Nicholas Turturro as Angelo Buono. A discussion with cast and crew will follow the film.

Tonight at The Fold at the Silverlake Lounge, catch a free show featuring Marjorie Fair (formerly Parlour), Gliss and Grand Ronde.
