Join us for a book signing with local author Scott Jones of his new collection of short stories, Before The Dawn!

"Jaw-dropping!" - The Village Voice

"This third installment of Romero's zombie series remains the most mentally engaging and provoking one of the lot."
- Chas. Balun, The Gore Score

"It's a film that is much easier to take seriously than Dawn of the Dead and one which improves upon some of Night Of The Living Dead's rough edges to create a legitimate horror film, one which sticks with you and manages to make you think while at the same time getting under your skin." - Ian Jane,

In this third shocker in the legendary trilogy from writer/director George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead), a small group of scientists and soldiers have taken refuge in an underground missile silo where they struggle to control the flesh-eating horror that walks the earth above. But will the final battle for the future of the human race be fought among the living or have they forever unleashed the hunger of the dead? Lori Cardille, Joe Pilate, Richard Liberty and Howard Sherman stre in this controversial classic with groundbreaking gore effects by Tom Savini and featuring the most intense zombie carnage ever filmed.

About Scott Jones and Before the Dawn: A young man possessed by an evil spirit now stalks his friends. A college town overrun by a zombie plague. A woman who survives a werewolf attack now becomes a threat to who she loves. A vampiric creature from beyond the stars who stakes its claim on a small town. A group of friends just looking for fun unleash a black magic curse. These five stories will give truth to the old adage: It's always darkest before the dawn.

Scott Jones is a graduate of the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA where he still resides. Before the Dawn will be available for purchase at the screening.
