This Halloween, members of Chinese Club observed a classic Halloween tradition.  After taking attendance, signing up non-members and watching a piano competition, food was served.  This included dumplings, chips, and a variety of beverages, both American and Chinese.

“We decided to watch Silk, which is a horror movie about ghosts.  It was really scary, even with a low budget.  Like, when the car flipped, it didn’t even explode,” Senior Yuen Zhang said, Vice president of Chinese Club.

The movie, Silk, is a Taiwanese film directed by Su Chao-Bin, was made in 2006, and is a thriller loosely mixed with science fiction.

“Yeah, so basically, the Japanese government is investigating ghosts, and hires this scientist to contain this kid ghost who may or may not be violent, and it goes downhill from there,”  Freshman Andy Kern said.

Golden Circle Films considered making a remake, but nothing came of it.

“All in all, it was a great way to celebrate Halloween,” Zhang said.
