Night of the Living Dead by George Romero and John Russo is a classic of zombie movie horror and now is your chance to see this story in two different ways.
Fall out from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. A gripping terror-filled monochromatic play that brings all the fright of the cult classic to life. This blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.
RiffTrax is doing one of their live shows on Tursday October 24 with their riffed version of Night of the Living Dead. I think this version is going to be different from their earlier riff version. The movie is only about 90 minutes long, but they always use about two hours. Which means there should be several shorts before the feature to check out. Plus arrive early for the pre-show “trivia.”
Check your area for a showing. I will be in Barboursville again myself. Tickets are still available.
