Zombie Film Marathon
Saturday, Oct. 6, 2007, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
55 Davis Square, Somerville, MA 02144

Brains! People eating brains! Dead people eating brains! And all other sorts of delicious organs inside the human body. Zombies are scary, this is true, and all the more reason to watch 12 hours of zombie films throughout the night. Movies will include such classics as I Walked with a Zombie (1943), Re-Animator (1985), and Brain/Dead (1992). And then at 7 a.m. you can catch the bus back to Brandeis and your friends will think you're a zombie from your pale skin and incomprehensible speech patterns! Little known fact: Zombies speak Latin (It's a dead language)! Tickets are $24 in advance and $30 day-of-show.
