Bloody Disgusting is proud to join forces with Cinefamily to present Zombies, Zombies, Zombies!, a featured part of the Silent Movie Theatre’s month-long horror film showcase. Each Thursday throughout October, our own BC will be on hand to present the night’s films, and possibly have some prizes to give away to B-D readers! In fact, we have three pairs of passes to give away for this Thursday’s double feature of Return of the Living Dead and Night of the Creeps! Read after the break for the Zombies, Zombies, Zombies! lineup, and how to score passes. Check out the official site for the rest of the schedule!
The zombie–a real Romero zombie, not the voodoo kind–is the first new monster in decades that has captured the public imagination with the same kid of archetypal recurrence as werewolves and vampires, rising up again and again. It’s a modern, urban terror; humans aren’t necessarily supposed to be surrounded by millions of other humans. What if these faceless hordes of people of people we have to deal with, packed into one location, all mindlessly turned on each other? On us? But the zombie-take-all scenario isn’t just a fear–it’s a fantasy too, exposing our secret desire to guiltlessly blow away row after row of hungry, stupid humanoids, with no repercussions. When is it gonna be most okay to shoot someone in the head? In the zombie apocalypse, that’s when.
