«They're coming to get you… Barbara, there's one of them now!»

Raise a glass and tip your hat while we dim the lights and fire up the projector in honour of the late, great George Romero with a Friday Late Night Movie viewing of his landmark 1968 «zombie horror apocalypse» thriller NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. This film — an archetypical classic of not just the horror «genre,» but any genre — is the cinematic blueprint for so many films of its ilk, following a group of people trying to survive an attack of bloodthirsty zombies while trapped in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse. *As this is a tribute to George Romero and we are playing his best-loved film, audience costumes are welcome — and encouraged! Show us what you've got… If you dare!!!

«George A. Romero's debut set the template for the zombie film, and features tight editing, realistic gore, and a sly political undercurrent.» (Rotten Tomatoes)

«If [Romero's] original vision of the undead looks dulled by today's standards, his embedded political commentary on racism feels just as sharp.» (Vulture)

«It's a virulent portrait of an America in flux and decay, from the flag billowing near the graveyard at the start to its disturbing depiction of a lynch-mob mentality. But Night also transcends its period through sheer intensity.» (Total Film)

«The original and the best.» (Empire Magazine)
