Day of the Dead


Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. George A. Romero. 1985, 100 mins. 35mm. Lori Cardille, Sherman Howard, Joseph Pilato, Terry Alexander, Richard Liberty.From the master of the zombie film comes the darkest day of horror the world has ever known. Society has collapsed, driving people underground where a small team of scientists, civilians, and trigger-happy soldiers battle for the survival of the human race. And we haven’t even mentioned the zombies waiting aboveground. Day of the Dead marks the reunion of Romero and special effects legend Tom Savini, and together they deliver a picture that pushes the envelope on every level, from body-munching gore to biting social critique. The perfect film to celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year!
