NY! “RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD” returns for one-night-only with star James Karen attending


This coming Monday, May 20, New York City’s Film Forum(209 West Houston Street) will be screening a rare 35mm print of ALIEN creator Dan O’Bannon’s 1985 directorial debut, the 1985 punk-rock horror-comedy cult classic RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. Actor and fan favorite James Karen (MULHOLLAND DR., INVADERS FROM MARS, POLTERGEIST, FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER) will be present to introduce the film and participate in a Q&A afterwards.

For the few unfamiliar with the flick, it is O’Bannon’s unofficial sequel to George A. Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, and was the film that spawned the notion that zombies can, in fact, be capable of demanding more “braaaiiiins.” Scream queen Linnea Quigley plays the unforgettable Trash in the raucous movie, and Clu Gulager and Thom Mathews co-star. Admission to RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD special event is $12.50, $7 for Film Forum members.
