The Madrid Film Club - This Friday!

The MADRID FILM CLUB presents a special screening of: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
Friday, October 17, 7 p.m. $5

Local film guru, Richard Ricci, will introduce this 1968 cult classic which gave birth to the modern horror movie and spawned a new genre: Zombie Movies. The story, in which the dead eat the living, also contains controversial racial statements. Ricci was instrumental in the inception and production of the film, and is the first Zombie in history to be shot in the head! Discussion with Ricci to follow. Also screening the TV commercial made by the same crew, which earned them the money to shoot NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Made on a tight budget, the film went on to gross over $100 million world-wide and become one of the most influential horror films of all time.

THE MADRID FILM CLUB is offering a selection of local, cult, and theme films every other Friday in the funky, historic, haunted venue: The Engine House Theater in beautiful Madrid, New Mexico. We hope to entertain as well as educate, through discussions with the filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts.
