Bloody scary: zombies and Cthulhu

Go brainlessly insane (with joy!) watching clips from ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction and Cthulhu and then find out what dark madness inspired Seattle filmmakers John Sinno and Kevin Hamedani (ZMD) and Dan Gildark (Cthulhu).

Explore why the future of horror lurks in local films at Reel Fear: An Evening with Local Horror Filmmakers, 7 p.m., Tues., May 19 at the Science Fiction Museum's JBL Theater, the next Exposed: Inside Film feature.

Northwest Film Forum program director Adam Sekuler hosts. Reel Fear is free for EMP|SFM and
Northwest Film Forum members and just $5 otherwise.

Inviting us to the show EMP|SMF asks, "Do you have a taste for the bloody and scary?" Why yes. Yes, we do.

Once the Jim Henson's Fantastic World exhibit opens Sat., May 23, look for the Exposed: Inside Film series to feature Labyrinth with guest Karen Prell, a puppeteer (Labyrinth) and animator (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). Labyrinth shows 7 p.m., Tues., July 21 at the JBL Theater. The Jim Henson exhibit will be on display through Aug. 16.

To ponder:
Who would win in a fight between a zombie horde and Cthulhu? Cthulhu, right? No argument? How about a zombie horde vs. Cthulhu cultists? David Bowie vs. cultists?

Hmm, back in '07 when Zombies of Mass Destruction was being filmed in Port Gamble this call went out for extras. Should we look for you in the ooze and the letterman's jacket?
