Is that a chill in the air? Or is it a chill running down your spine from thoughts of Blood, Guts, and Ghouls?!? The Bentley Library staff has put together a display of books and DVDs that are sure to thrill and spook you this Halloween season.
You can revisit classic gothic works Dracula and Frankenstein. Discover new bloodsucking tomes such as Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series or the Charlaine Harris books that inspired the HBO TV series True Blood. Delve deep into the gothic/horror genre with various literary criticisms and histories on our fascination with what goes bump in the dark.
In the mood for a scary movie? Pick your poison! Our DVD selection ranges from Hitchcock flicks to Halloween. Frights abound with foreign films The Host, The Orphanage and many more. We also have family favorites including Bedknobs and Broomsticks and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
We hope you’re bewitched by our picks! On display now in the lobby of the library.
No more DVDs and videos kept under lock and key! We have reviewed our policy regarding the faculty DVD collection (DVDs and videos normally reserved for faculty check-out only), and in the interest of providing access to all we are allowing all DVDs and videos in the faculty collection to circulate to any member of the Bentley community for 3 days. This change opens the door to an additional collection of 3,000+ DVDs and videos, including many documentaries and educational films that students will find useful for their courses. Please note, all DVDs in the popular DVD collection will continue to circulate for 7 days.
To find a DVD or video by title, subject, or keyword, simply go to http://libcat.bentley.edu and click on the “DVDs/Videos” link.

Find out if the survivors of the colonial fleet finally locate Earth in the final season of Battlestar Galactica.

You can even take a walk down memory lane and revisit past Emmy winners including All in the Family, M*A*S*H, and The Cosby Show.
