Zombies will once again rise downtown at The Cary Theater. We’re excited to bring you the 4th annual Zombiepalooza featuring local filmmakers’ zombie short films.
Bring the kids for a family-friendly FREE night of zombie cinema and cosplay. Dress as your favorite horror character, or channel your inner zombie rebel and be a part of our costume contest! Our neighboring bars and restaurants will be open, and there will be Twinkies for everyone to celebrate our muse of a Zombie film – Zombieland. And, we’re celebrating the October 2019 release of Zombieland Double Tap! Our screening of the 2019 Zombiepalooza films will be followed by The Dead Don’t Die.
Local filmmakers and hobbyists have been invited to get creative and tell their own Zombie stories in one to five minutes. Filmmakers range in age from teens to older adults, using all types of cameras, including smartphones. The common theme… ZOMBIES. Imaginations run wild! As always, there’s one required element every filmmaker must use. This year it’s the hair dryer, so keep your eyes peeled for at least one visible in every film.
