When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth...and head right to the theater to see George A. Romero's Dawn Of The Dead! The zombie classic is heading back to the big screen in April and May to celebrate it's 45th anniversary throughout the U.S. and Canada. Some theaters will even have a 3-D version to experience!

Romero's second zombie film came out about a decade after his groundbreaking Night Of The Living Dead. Expanding on the idea of the undead feasting on the living, a band of survivors played by Gaylen Ross, David Emge, Ken Foree and Scott H. Reiniger take off from the city in a helicopter and find shelter in a mall. Turning the place into a near-fortress, they were able to temporarily forget the horrors shambling around outside and enjoy all the mall had to offer. That is, until a group of marauding bikers spotted their new home and decided to take it for themselves. Like all of Romero's best films, Dawn not only excels with the scares, but also the more philosophical moments that elevated horror long before that term was coined.

In addition to the general release presented by New Amsterdam Entertainment, Inc., Cinemark and Fangoria are teaming up to show the movie in the same Pennsylvania mall it was shot in. On April 12, the film will play at the iconic Monroeville Mall with some very special guests including zombie actors Bob Michelucci and Mike Narducci, stunt performer Marty Schiff, second assistant makeup artist Joe Shelby and production assistant Sharon Hill. The Living Dead Museum is also sending over the sidecar motorcycle from the flick for fans to snap pics with.

A favorite here at the site, we highly encourage everyone who can to get out and see Dawn Of The Dead on the silver screen!
