Birth of the Living Dead
Oct 18-24
Arena Cinema Hollywood, 1625 N Las Palmas Ave

A doc on when George Romero made good zombie movies instead of coming back from the dead to make garbage.

"Birth of the Living Dead, shows how a young college drop-out named George A.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. The zombie became its own genre worth billions of dollars that continues to this day."

Toad Road
Oct 18-24
Arena Cinema Hollywood, 1625 N Las Palmas Ave

The premiere opening with Wood and the director is already sold-out.

"A different kind of American independent horror film, Toad Road presented here by Elijah Wood and his genre-themed production company SpectreVision is a hallucinatory and hypnotic odyssey through mutating realities, drug use, urban legends, and nightmares."

This Magneto Zombie bust was available at the NYCC last weekend. Silly, because he didn't become a zombie in the Marvel Zombies stories, he just go eaten.
