In Los Angeles on Friday January 11th 2013? Friday Night Frights presents Zombie at a midnight showing!
If you live in the LA area and are looking for something to do on this upcoming Friday night at midnight what could sound better than a midnight showing of Fulci’s classic Zombie? It’s going to be a great event being such an awesome film and worth a showing on the big screen if you haven’t seen it that way before. If yo have you’ll probably agree that it’s worth seeing again!
To horror/zombie fans, Lucio Fulci’s 1979 gut-muncher needs no introduction. An unofficial Italian sequel to George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead, Fulci’s jungle island freakout is truly its own beast, and is a horror tale that owes more to the classic voodoo iteration of the zombie rather than Romero’s modern-age reboot. But forget all that — as there’s a real reason this is regarded as a classic: the wonderful, wonderful gore and make-up effects that Fulci slathers onto the screen with reckless, joyful abandon. All of his stylistic trademarks are present: the creeping dread, the dream-logic hysteria, the eye trauma — all wrapped into one magnificent zombified package, and set to the relentless beat of a voodoo drum score (courtesy of Italian horror movie music stalwart Fabio Frizzi.) We didn’t have space to squeeze Zombie into this past October’s “Video Nasties” retrospective, so don’t miss your chance to see this staple of the genre in glorious 35mm. We are going to eat you!
You can follow the film on Facebook.
