BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD/NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD - DOUBLE FEATURE! (Grindhouse Night)
6:30pm - BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD - In 1968 a young college drop-out named George A. Romero directed "Night of the Living Dead," a low budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day. This new documentary, shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers - policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad-men, housewives and a roller-rink owner - to shoot, with a revolutionary guerrilla, run-and-gun style, his seminal film. During that process Romero and his team created an entirely new and horribly chilling monster - one that was undead and feasted upon human flesh.
8:00pm - NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD - The dead come back to life and eat the living. Several people barricade themselves inside a rural house to escape the horrific end of being eaten alive by the cannibalistic horde, a living dead mob of relentless, shambling zombies that can only be killed by a blow or a bullet to the head. Inside the rural house, another struggle for leadership erupts between the hapless group of people trying to survive the Night of the Living Dead!
This special double feature edition of Parkway Grindhouse is hosted by none other than Misery Ann Mayhem!
