Night of the Living Dead
Dir: George A. Romero (USA 1968, 96 mins)
Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is often cited as being one of the most influential horror films of all time, following a group of desperate civilians who fight to avoid death at the hands of flesh-eating zombies when the dead suddenly come back to life.
And what better setting for this film than the grounds of Dudley Castle? With the audience sat amongst the castle ruins, ankles dangerously close to the ground, where zombies could quite easily burst forth from at any moment…..
7pm: Doors open
9pm: Warm up films
9:30pm: Our feature presentation – Night of the Living Dead
Please note: outdoor events go ahead come rain or shine. Tickets are non-refundable.
