Selection of the month: Occult

For Halloween coming up, the films in this selection take paths that blur the boundaries between reality and imaginary and bring the living and the dead into dialogue.

Whether it's love affairs, hypnosis, rites of passage, ghost or vampire films, the occult powers of cinema are carried by the masters of the genre, such as Jean Cocteau, Kenji Mizoguchi, Dario Argento or John Carpenter.

Ten films that go through the mirror to better explore the fragility of our human condition.
