    The Museum of Arts and Design presents the film series
    Zombo Italiano: The Italian Zombie Film Movement, 1972 – 1985
    in conjunction with its acclaimed exhibition Dead or Alive.


    The film series Zombo Italiano: The Italian Zombie Film Movement will run from July 8 through July 29 at MAD, located at 2 Columbus Circle in New York City. The MAD Theater will screen 10 works by a generation of directors, some celebrated, some obscure, who through their pioneering special effects pushed the boundaries of low-culture and gore to deal brutally and humorously with the body at its most material, while offering a grotesque but poetic vision of nature and humanity. The films include cult classics by Lamberto Bava, Jorge Grau, Lucio Fulci, Pier Paolo Pasolini, George A. Romero, and Michele Soavi. On the evenings of July 8 and 9, Roger Ma and the Zombie Combat Club will provide a pre-film demonstration of essential combat skills for surviving encounters with the living dead. Among the subjects covered will be: anatomy, weapons, martial techniques, and common misconceptions concerning how to confront a ravenous walking corpse.

    This is an epic classic zombie flick. I just recently saw Zombieland with Woody Harrelson and it was a lot of fun while still having the classic elements that Zombie movies need. He is good at being funny and being a badass at the same time in this flick. If you are a horrorfan like me, then you will probably appreicate the upcoming release of Piranha 3D in theaters. In the 60's there was Piranha and Jaws, but this is an updated story with lots of sexy chicks, action, blood, gore and Piranhas ruining spring break like its their job. At least thats the vibe I get from the preview. It really looks like a lot of fun and something to really get into. Imagine all those old Zombie flicks in 3d, Piranha 3D is actually going to be in 3D!

    You can't beat a good zombie movie.

    Zombieland is my personal favourite.

    Can't wait for Resident Evil 3D to come out tho.
