The Trash Film Orgy, Sacramento’s beloved cult-movie festival, first screened Lucio Fulci’s Zombie in 2003, accompanied by a live, original musical production best summarized as “Zombie vs. Shark.” It had dancing fish and shimmying seaweed, a sexy underwater burlesque number, and plenty of undead-on-great-white fisticuffs. (Fin-ticuffs?)

As always, Sacramento is ahead of the curve in nostalgically looking backward. The rest of the world is just beginning to rediscover the unsettling terror of Zombie. The film has been digitally remastered and will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 25, just in time for film buffs to gross out on it at their Halloween parties. But if you want the visceral, musical experience only the Trash Film Orgy can provide, mark your calendar for TFO’s midnight screenings of Zombie on Friday, October 21, and Saturday, October 22.

The doors of the historic Crest Theatre, located at 1013 K Street, open at 11 p.m. for a delightfully demonic array of sinister carnival games and lobby spectacles. Find your seat before the clock strikes 12, because the TFO crew has updated the zombie vs. shark musical for a new era. Like the film itself, this one-of-a-kind campy performance has been remastered for your Halloween entertainment!

Tickets are $10 for humans, $9 for zombies and even cheaper for anyone with a ticket stub from the Sacramento Horror Film Festival happening that same weekend (see page 15 for details). All the details lurk at
