Drop Undead: Zombie Weekend

 

More Flesh-Eating Action at the Aero Theatre!

 

Zombies never look better than when they lumber across the big screen at the Aero & Egyptian Theatres - you won't miss a single flap of decaying skin as they pounce and devour in all their undead glory! Classics abound with a double feature of DEAD ALIVE and CEMETERY MAN, a double feature of Sam Raimi's EVIL DEAD II and ARMY OF DARKNESS, Lucio Fulci's ZOMBIE and - what Zombie Weekend would be complete without it? - George A. Romero's original zombie-v.-citizens masterpiece, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Come dressed in your Zombie best!

 


Friday, August 20 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: DEAD ALIVE (aka BRAINDEAD), 1992, Lionsgate, 97 min. The poisonous bite of a Sumatran rat monkey leads to an out-of-control zombie epidemic in Peter Jackson’s deliriously entertaining gross-out fest. It’s over-the-top gore and slapstick recalls Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD movies, but its off-kilter sense of wit and New Zealand atmosphere are pure Jackson. Trailer

CEMETERY MAN (aka DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE), 1996, 105 min. Director Michele Soavi (THE CHURCH, STAGE FRIGHT) adapts Tiziano Sclavi’s darkly humorous graphic novel "Dylan Dog" into this eccentric, sumptuously photographed zombie film. Rupert Everett is Francesco Dellamorte, a lonely, romantic caretaker who needs to keep killing the undead that stubbornly keep rising from the graves in his cemetery.

Sunday, August 22 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, 1968, 96 min. Director George Romero’s unqualified masterpiece pits a handful of citizens holed up in a farmhouse against a newly revived horde of flesh-eating zombies. The cast of talented unknowns (headed by Duane Jones) are all alarmingly believable as they fight for life, trying to escape a bad dream that gets uncompromisingly worse and more horrifying as the hours crawl by. Trailer

ZOMBIE, 1979, Anchor Bay Entertainment, 91 min. A zombie epidemic breaks out in the Caribbean and non-stop carnage ensues in this classic gorefest from horror maestro Lucio Fulci. Highlights include the world's greatest fight between a shark and a zombie! Buy Tickets
