Zombie All-Nighter at London's BFI IMAX on Jan 19th
9th Jan 08
Yes, those good old folk over at the BFI have organised another one of their great all-nighter line-ups at their fantastic 485-seater huge-screened IMAX cinema, and the best news is that it's a full-on brains-munching four-parter featuring our good old friends, the zombies (and the 'infected', oh, and a slithery mutation)!
Friday the 19th January is the day you want to put in your 'Diaries of the Dead' (first film starts at 11.30pm) as the huge screen at the BFI Imax will play host to Slither, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later before wrapping up the night with a screening of fan-favourite Shaun of the Dead.
Read on below for the full press release;
Scare away the New Year blues with our Zombie All-Nighter. Four blood-thirsty hits play end-to-end - do you dare to stay the night...?
To help you along, our licensed bar will be open and we'll be providing free tea and coffee throughout the night - anyone for a Bloody Mary...?
Slither A small southern US town is taken over by an alien plague, turning its residents into hideous mutant zombies. This heady mixture of gross-out body horror and pitch-black humour proved to be an instant cult hit.
28 Days Later A virus that locks those infected into a permanent state of murderous rage is accidentally released from a research facility. Danny Boyle's post-apocalyptic thriller is a modern British horror classic.
28 Weeks Later Six months after the rage virus has annihilated mainland Britain, the US army declares that reconstruction of the country can begin. But the virus is not yet dead, and this time it's more dangerous than ever.
Shaun of the Dead Another London-set zombie apocalypse and one of the funniest British films of recent years, from the team who more recently delivered Hot Fuzz. Hilarious... but with a couple of genuine scares!
BFI IMAX all-nighters sell out fast, so book your tickets today!
2nd Mar 05 This movie involves a lot of talking and a lot of walking around, opening doors, then walking a bit further, opening another door, then wiping off dirty hands, then perchance a glimpse of nudity with no follow-through.
