nightdead5.jpgEven though it may be eight months until Halloween, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy some spooky and funny cinema this weekend.

At the Landmark Sunshine Theater on Friday and Saturday, as a part of their on going series of midnight movies, they'll be screening a program they've dubbed "Spooktacular!" (exclamation point apparently is totally necessary). It starts with a bunch of camp and classic horror trailers, then is followed by George A. Romero's zombie masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead (1968). The film may look grainy and washed out by our current slick zombie remake standards but for a first feature by writer and director Romero, this is pretty intriguing work. And lurching, slow moving zombies are still the best.
