Wow, this is a treat. We all know and love Night of the Living Dead, but when was the last time if ever you got to see a film print of it projected on a big screen? Well, now"s your chance.
The film that started a cinematic zombie revolution forty-five years ago plays in 35mm for our July Nitehawk Nasty presentation of Night of the Living Dead.
What can be said about George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead? Not only did it give birth to the modern notion of what a ‘zombie’ is and provided a socio-political context in which we can view the zombie (and horror film as a genre) but it is also one of the most important films of the 20th century. A true case of underground filmmaking capturing the current climate, Night of the Living Dead shows what happens when seven strangers wind up in a barnhouse during the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. And while the dead are rising, it’s the alive ones they really have to worry about. With one of the most devastating endings in cinema, Night of the Living Dead is not just a film to see on the big screen but also one that demands repeat viewings. Come celebrate its 45 years of relevance with Nitehawk this summer!
**This is one movie I encourage you to buy your tix in advance to**
