Oh! I keep forgetting to mention this: Those of you in the greater Portland, OR metro area may be interested to know that the second annual Zompire film festival is this Friday and Saturday. Zompire is a film festival celebrating the undead, whether they be brainmunchers or blood suckers.
Last year was a hoot, so I highly recommend going, especially since this year seems to be almost entirely focused on the shorts. Saturday night does feature the classic "Coreys" film Lost Boys to satisfy those of you jonesing to see Kiefer Southerland on the big screen once again, so you shouldn't miss that.
Between films they showed some shorts from Portland area filmmakers, including the really excellent The Last Girlfriend, Con of the Dead and a trailer for the incredibly awesome looking Worst Case Scenario. I'll see if I can find links for those because they were pretty entertaining.
Dead Alive went over really well, the crowd was laughy in the hilarious parts ("I kick ass for the lord!") and groany at the gory stuff, which is pretty much the rest of the movie.
I'm really stoked for Return of the Living Dead, but it seems as if the crowd is thinning out a bit, which is a shame because it's the best of the bunch.
