MARTIN
1977, Lionsgate, 95 min, Dir: George A. Romero

This tale of a young man who may or may not be a 100-year-old vampire, seeking redemption for his bloodlust, is both sympathetic and horrific thanks to John Amplas’ performance as the title character. Is he really a vampire or a mentally disturbed killer?


DAWN OF THE DEAD 3-D
2015, 127 min, Dir: George A. Romero

Writer-director George A. Romero ups the ante on his indie landmark NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD with a bigger budget, more gore (courtesy of special effects/makeup artist Tom Savini) and a touch of social commentary. Four people take refuge in a Pennsylvania shopping mall as a mysterious plague turns fresh corpses into flesh-hungry zombies and civilization collapses around them. This is the original, unrated 1979 U.S. theatrically released version of DAWN OF THE DEAD which has been lovingly and meticulously adapted to a 3-D format under the frame-by-frame supervision of DAWN’S original producer, Richard P. Rubinstein. "One of the best horror films ever made." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
