Discussion between films with actors Clu Gulager, Beverly Randolph, John Philbin, Brian Peck and Jewel Shepard, production designer William Stout and documentary producer Michael Perez.
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD
1985, Park Circus/MGM, 90 min, USA, Dir: Dan O’Bannon
"They’re Back… They’re Hungry… And They’re NOT Vegetarian!!" Director-writer Dan O’Bannon’s gory, gleeful, punk-rock godfather of SHAUN OF THE DEAD. In this unofficial "sequel" to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, gas canisters leak at a medical supply warehouse, evaporate and then inadvertently rain down on the nearby cemetery and mortuary. Much skull-splitting, brain-eating hilarity ensues… along with a punked-out Linnea Quigley’s unforgettable erotic cemetery dance! With Clu Gulager and Don Calfa as Burt and Ernie, production design by William Stout, and a great soundtrack provided by The Damned, Roky Erickson, The Flesh Eaters and The Cramps. "Send… more... paramedics."
NIGHT OF THE CREEPS
1986, Sony Repertory, 88 min, USA, Dir: Fred Dekker
When a couple of pledges thaw out the corpse of a fraternity member who was infected by aliens, they unleash a zombie epidemic on campus. A loving homage to the B movies of the 1950s. MONSTER SQUAD auteur Fred Dekker directs this cult favorite which gave Tom Atkins the role of a lifetime. "The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is...they're dead."
