ZOMBIE & BURIAL GROUND Double Feature

Friday, March 10th at 10pm

$18 Members | $22 Public

 

Retro Picture Show returns with Lucio Fulci’s ZOMBIE (1979) and BURIAL GROUND (1980), both on 35mm!

 

ZOMBIE (1979)

Produced in response to the worldwide success of George A. Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD (titled ZOMBIES in Italy), Lucio Fulci’s ZOMBIE (titled ZOMBIE 2 in Italy) stands on its own as a ground-breaking visceral horror experience. This international smash-hit kick-started a short-lived but incredibly prolific Italian exploitation movie industry of zombies and cannibal films.

ZOMBIE has some of the most gut-wrenching scenes of bodily violation ever seen. From slow motion tracheotomies to exploding heads and the agonizing scene of the lovely Olga Karlatos’ beautiful eye being pulled into a wooden splinter. There is even an underwater battle between a zombie and a shark – guess who wins. (Italy, 1979, 92 mins, Dir. Lucio Fulci, 35mm)

 

BURIAL GROUND (1980)

What began as a carefree weekend at a stately Scottish mansion turns to bone-chilling terror when the dead rise, in all their decaying glory, to greet the living.

A young mother and her son are invited to spend a weekend on the country estate of a Scottish aristocrat. The house is also occupied by a strange guest, known only as “The Professor.” No one pays much attention to him, but he is the key to the impending horrors. The attacks begin during the night – gruesome and unspeakable acts of terror committed by living corpses. It appears that nothing can stop this madness, as the dead take their place as rulers of the living. (Italy, 1980, 85 mins, Dir. Andrea Bianchi, 35mm)
