Celebrate Halloween early with Kings County Cinema Society as they host a Free screening of Zombi II (aka Zombie, aka Zombie Flesh Eaters, 1979, 90min). Following Zombi II there will be a few shorts to go along with the zombie and Halloween theme. Feel free to BYOB, snacks, barf bags. Don’t there will be popcorn provided. To make it a real experience put on a costume why don’t ya!
Zombi II Synopsis (from KCCS):
Shot on a shoestring budget in Brooklyn, Rome, Santo Domingo D.R. and Isla Mujeres, Mexico, the Italian production follows a team of hapless Americans who track an outbreak of the cannibalistic undead from NYC to the Caribbean. Contains bad acting, worse dubbing, hypnotic, surreal imagery, impaled eyeballs, and needless T&A. Also: a zombie battles a fuckin’ shark. FYI: There never was a Zombi 1: the film opened on the heels of George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, titled “Zombi” in Italy… Fulci’s non-sequel is a shameless attempt to capitalize on the success of Romero’s masterpiece.
Preceded by recent horror shorts:
The Resurrection of Officer Rollins (2009, 20min) a short by Nathan “Karma” Cox, starring Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees) and Rodney Eastman (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3)
Mama (2008, 3min) a gothic horror piece from Barcelona by Andres Muschietti; and Aaaagh! A Monster! (2009, 6min) director Gabriel Renfro’s account of a domestic monster massacre.
Short films hand picked by Mr. David Woodard Jr. of the NYC Horror Film Festival, running Nov. 10-14 at Tribeca Cinemas.
