L.A.! FANGORIA and The Jumpcut Cafe host free “HAROLD’S GOING STIFF” screening this weekend!


The acclaimed UK faux documentary from Keith Wright about what it’s like transitioning to life as undead is out this week from Level 33. If you’re in L.A. however, you can skip the download and catch it projected for free.

This Sunday, August 25 at 7 p.m. come down to the JumpCut Cafe onVentura Blvd (I hear the quesadilla is splendid) and allow FANGORIA and Level 33 to treat you to a zombie film that’s both applause-worthy and unexpected. In HAROLD’S GOING STIFF, “Harold is suffering from a frightening new disease that is turning him into a zombie. After an experimental new treatment fails, Harold’s condition deteriorates and he ends up on the run from a group of violent vigilantes who are out for blood.”

Fango’s Shawn Macomber says the film “locates the strange, hitherto unplumbed nexus between Michael Haneke’s AMOUR, HAROLD AND MAUDE, and George Romero’s initial 1968 salvo of rot n’ shuffle,” (full review here), while the great Kim Newman calls it, “”Blackly funny and surprisingly touching, this zombie mock-doc is far more inventive than it has any right to be”.

If you’d like to attend, you can register at Eventbrite and find all the details it the Facebook Invite. For more on the film, our Kier-La Janisse wrote about HAROLD’S GOING STIFF and horror and old age at Spectacular Optical here.
