“They’re coming to Webster U, Barbara…..!”
The Living Dead are coming to Webster University!
The Evolution of the Zombie, a film series based around our unquenchable appetite for all things undead, kicks off this Wednesday with the 1932 Bela Lugosi classic White Zombie (considered the first zombie film)and runs through October 20th. John Russo, who penned Night Of The Living Dead, the seminal Zombie film way back in 1968, will be a guest at the fest and will host a writing workshop. This will be a fantastic opportunity for fans of the zombie genre to see several of their favorite flesh-eaters on the big screen and for film students to meet the man who help developed the rules by which all the living dead live (while dead)!
Unless otherwise noted, admission is:
$6 for the general public
$5 for seniors, Webster alumni and students from other schools
$4 for Webster University staff »

The latest t-shirt and poster from Cavity Colors features the maggot-infested zombie from Lucio Fulci’s Zombie. Regarded in Italy an unofficial sequel to Dawn of the Dead, Zombie follows a group of survivors caught in an onslaught of flesh-eating zombie, whilst a doctor tries to find a cure. Cavity Colors have announced a tribute t-shirt and poster that will be available on Friday, September 6th:
“As we are gearing up for Fall and the season of ghouls and witches,we wanted to bring you something special that is inspired by one of my personal favorite zombie movies. As a total horror nerd, we all know there’s a ton of amazing zombie related movies such as return of the living dead, dawn and day of the dead, and of course night of the living dead. But one movie sort of stands out from them all when it comes to realism and absolute gore, »

La course du lièvre à travers les champs (The Race of the Hare Across the Fields a.k.a. ...and Hope to Die, 1972) is an interesting late entry in the career of French crime specialist René Clément, a kind of smorgasbord of his favorite stuff: hardboiled crime, knotty sexual triangles, a hero on the run, convoluted crime schemes, with a harkening back to childhood sins that suggests his classic Jeux interdits (Forbidden Games, 1952). This might suggest desperation to recapture past glories, but the film is also stuffed with experimentation and up-to-the-minute influences (a train station confrontation early on suggests Leone) which confirm the filmmaker as alert to new possibilities.
But the film could just as easily be approached through the sensibility of its writer, Sébastien Japrisot, a key figure in French cinema and crime cinema, or even through that of the author of the source novel, David Goodis. »
