Sat, Aug 5 at Midnight: Introduction from film critic Jason Shawhan | BUY TICKETS
Part of Midnight Movies
On his first day on the job at a medical supply warehouse, poor Freddy (Thom Mathews) unwittingly releases toxic gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing an unbelievable terror. The gas reanimates an army of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger…for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!
From the screenwriter of ALIEN, Dan O’Bannon, this love letter to zombie pioneer George A. Romero’s classic LIVING DEAD series revises and expands upon the mythos of the original — while adding an edgy, darkly comedic bent that has earned it a well deserved cult following.
“This is an energetic cross-referencing of genre: not just a horror movie, but a comic apocalyptic zombie horror movie. O'Bannon has his cake, eats it, and then throws it up in the face of the audience.” —Time Out NY
