Zombie Fest V


This Memorial Day Weekend (May 24-26), the unstoppable ZOMBIEFEST returns in its fifth incarnation to the Mahoning Drive-In Theater! Presented by Exhumed Films, ZOMBIEFEST V will again showcase nine fright-filled living dead features over three terrifying nights! If this one doesn’t scare you, you’re already dead!

ZOMBIEFEST V - May 24-26:

Friday, May 24th:

NIGHT OF THE CREEPS (1986)- Alien space slugs turn a college campus into a zombie bloodbath until some students band together with a disgraced detective to set things right again in Fred (THE MONSTER SQUAD) Dekker’s infectious, humorous horror gem.

NIGHT OF THE DEMONS (1988)- On Halloween night, a group of teens gather at an abandoned funeral home for a party only to unleash a demon during a seance that takes them over one by bloody one! A wild 80’s gore fest from director Kevin S Tenney and writer/producer Joe Augustyn.

NIGHT OF THE SEAGULLS (1975)- The fourth film in Amando De Ossorio’s “Blind Dead” series is one of the best! A doctor and his wife relocate to a small coastal community only to learn that every seven years, for seven days, hideously rotting undead monks return from the grave to claim their gory sacrifices!

Saturday, May 25th:

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)- It begins with Barbara and Johnny driving miles out of their way to put a wreath on their father’s grave, and ends with one of the most stark and unforgettable moments in movie history! The film that started it all... George A. Romero’s monumental modern horror classic returns to the drive-in screen!

PHANTASM (1978)- After the death of his parents, a young man becomes aware of a mysterious Tall Man and some very strange and bizarre things going on at the neighborhood funeral home. Don Coscarelli’s weirdly imaginative, nightmarish horror favorite finally comes to the giant Mahoning screen! Boyyyy!

DEAD AND BURIED (1981)- From the creators of ALIEN and the director of VICE SQUAD! A series of brutal murders plague a small seaside town, but the corpses seem to keep coming back to life! It will take your breath away... all of it! Special makeup effects by Stan (ALIENS, THE TERMINATOR) Winston.

Sunday, May 26th:

The legendary ORGY OF THE LIVING DEAD drive-in/grindhouse triple-bill returns to the big screen for the first time in decades! Can you stand such a triple avalanche of grisly horror? In 1972, John Austin Frazier was committed to a mental hospital after viewing this shocking program. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! See... if you dare:

REVENGE OF THE LIVING DEAD (aka. THE MURDER CLINIC)

Mario Bava’s CURSE OF THE LIVING DEAD (aka. KILL, BABY KILL)

and

Amando (TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD) De Ossorio’s FANGS OF THE LIVING DEAD

...together on one feverishly frightening program!

Overnight Passes available at the box office each night!
