Thanks as always to DC for the head's up. If you are in the area, this is definitely worth checking out.


  1. technically speaking, Demons and Demons 2 dont figure into that list because they are about possesed people, not zombies. Plus there are more zombie movies they could have included in there that were part of the Italian Zombie Movie movement. Like Nightmare City for example..

    And Let Sleeping Corpses Lie isnt even Italian! They should have given that presentation a different name..but still, presenting all those cool films in one place is a cool event!

  2. It's basically a Lucio Fulci film fest, how awesome...I wish I lived back east, you guys get everything. HUGE SIGH!
