THE ZOMBIES ARE COMING!The Madison Theater in Albany, hosted a Zombie Film Festival this past weekend. So Friday night we headed to see the 7:00 p.m. showing of one of my go to movies.
Here is a teaser for the festival. Such fun!
The 3 day festival featured 7 zombie movies, lectures, a book signing and a zombie party.
As far as I was concerned, the highlight of the weekend was the screening of George A. Romero's
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
Before and after the movie there was a lecture and talk with SUNY Buffalo English Professor
David Schmid. I can not tell you exactly how many times I have watched this movie. And yes sad to say I can recite dialogue.
"They're coming to get you, Barbara. They're coming for you, Barbara. They're coming for you!"
Such a classic movie.
The other movies that filled in the weekend were JUAN OF THE DEAD,
PONTYPOOL, WHITE ZOMBIE, 28 DAYS LATER and the very independent and locally shot zombie spoof DEAD BURGER.
The Madison is owned by Tierra Farms in Valatie.
And they have a company store and coffee house next door to the theater.
