Short notice: If you just can't wait for the weekend to get your Halloween on, get over to LaunchPad tonight for some horror flicks courtesy of the Kings County Cinema Society. Info below:
In time for All Hallow's Eve, a screening of Lucio Fulci's Zombi II (aka Zombie, akaZombie Flesh Eaters, 1979, 90min). 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, needless T&A, and the best zombie vs. shark battle we've ever seen on film. amazing trailer
