If you're a fan of zombie movies, (and you're over 21) do yourself a favor and head to the Arlington Cinema n' Drafthouse Saturday night for the encore presentation of ZOMBthology—a wickedly funny (and wonderfully disgusting) trilogy of tales from the gang at Art Held Hostage.

The film is comprised of three separate shorts written and directed by
Robert Elkins, (segment "The Curse of Zombie Lake") Elias Dancey, (segment "A Slight Case of Zombism") and Chris Kiros (segment "The Stripper From B'twixt the Graves") respectively—deftly woven together with a plotline starring the scream queen herself, Tiffany Shepis!

19W's Donnie Conty, Nancy Yee, and I were thrilled to attend the premiere last night, along with Ghosts Don't Exist cast and crewmembers Josh Davidson, Gavin Peretti, Devon Marie Burt, Kathryn Coombs,
Patrick Shewmaker, Javy Espejo, and Charle Acierto. We were there for a very good reason—Josh and Gavin have key roles in the film's third segment, The Stripper From B'twixt the Graves!

The event was a blast, and it was great meeting some of the (twisted) minds behind ZOMBthology! The film is an awesomely fun ride from start to finish, but be warned—it's graphic, in every sense of the word.

On a related note, because the Drafthouse serves alcohol, they only allow patrons 21 years of age and older. And they will check your I.D., regardless of your age. (As one lovely and clearly middle-aged couple learned the hard way...) So bring your I.D.!

The encore is this Saturday, May 30th at 11:45PM. Go hungry, as the Drafthouse has a terrific menu in addition to drinks. You'll probably want to skip anything with ketchup during this one, though—just something to keep in mind while you enjoy the bloodletting zombie goodness. ;)
