    The stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000® are back in select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, October 24 for only one night in a hilarious never-before-seen take on the zombie movie that started it all: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.

    Join Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of RiffTrax.com on Thursday, October 24 at 7pm at the historic Belcourt Theatre for a hilarious riff on this masterpiece of brain eating mayhem! This one night event will be your only chance to see the guys fire their wisecracking commentary at Night of the Living Dead on the big screen.

    This classic 1968 horror film is where it all began! No, not the cronut trend. We’re talking about the omnipresent zombie craze! 28 Weeks Later, Resident Evil: Retribution, that Zack Snyder remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD...We wouldn’t have any of them without NIGHT OF THE LIVING! (Pause to think about whether this is a good thing.)

    When she’s attacked in a cemetery by zombies, a young woman named Barbara flees to an abandoned farm house. There she’s joined by a ragtag group of survivors who band together to wait out the apocalypse, with the occasional light descent into madness. The rest of the movie plays out like The Big Chill, but instead of Glenn Close sobbing naked in the shower, they board up windows and occasionally get devoured alive. So in this respect, Night of the Living Dead is the slightly less depressing movie.

    Shotguns! Molotov cocktails! Exploding cars! Head shots galore! Like one of those awesome zombie video games (except you don’t get to play it), RiffTrax Live: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is guaranteed to be scarier than Brad Pitt’s beard in World War Z and funnier than the acting on The Walking Dead! You won’t want to miss it!
