Thursday Night Terrors at the Dipson Amherst Theatre (3500 Main Street) kicks off tonight Thursday, August 24), with a showing of one of the all-time greatest zombie films of all time – Lucio Fulci’s undead classic ZOMBIE (aka Zombi 2). With fall on the way, the weather will soon draw cooler. After that, people will start to have Halloween on their minds. This initial film showing, is the precursor for even scarier times to come.
Originally marketed in Italy as a sequel to the late George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, ZOMBIE features many iconic moments including the infamous splinter scene and an underwater battle which has to be seen to be believed.
As with any killer horror film, ZOMBIE (1979 packs a serious punch in the film score category, with music produced by Fabio Frizzi.
Deadend Toyz & Teez will have a wide array of horror merchandise for sale in the lobby of the theater before the show.
