MST3K alums, Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, will be riffing on the granddaddy of all zombie movies. This time, George Romero's classic 1968 film, "Night of the Living Dead" will be the victim of their biting wit.
Presented by NCM Fathom Events, RiffTrax and IGN, “RiffTrax Live: Night of the Living Dead” is shambling in to select theaters for a LIVE 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT showing just in time for Halloween.
Tickets for the event can be purchased at a participating theater or online at FathomEvents.com.
“Halloween is a time to celebrate the simple things: neighbor kids begging at your door, cleaning splattered eggs off your car window, and of course, laughing along with the classic zombie movie that kick-started the genre. We’re thrilled to be riffing along with a great print of this much-loved film!” said Michael J. Nelson, RiffTrax creator and former host of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”
Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events, remarked, “An evening at the movie theater with RiffTrax Live is always a hilarious and fun experience. Seeing the guys fire their wisecracking commentary at ‘Night of the Living Dead’ on the big screen is a must-see for everyone’s Halloween to-do list.”
I must agree, Shelly, I’ve attended a few of these RiffTrax events and it’s always a great time. The crowd is fun and you’re guaranteed lots of laughs.
I’ll be enjoying the show at my local theater on October 24 ... will you? Let us know!
