127 - Dammit, Get Out Of My Head - Week of 9/5/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the film Night of the Living Dead. Arguably the king of all indie films, this was a truly groundbreaking horror film in so many ways. We all have lots of opinions on this one, and we add our normal weirdness, as well as our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Catching up on comics - Dark Ark, Brothers Dracul, DC 100-Page Giants
Squee's Wonderful Big Giant Book of Unspeakable Horrors - from Jhonen Vasquez's Johnny the Homicidal Maniac comics (and a tangent on secrets)
Out of town over the weekend - a nice trip
Legion of Super Heroes: The Silver Age vol 1 - good overall, but some questionable content; also RetroFan magazine, from TwoMorrows Publishing; also Master of the World (1961) with Vincent Price & Charles Bronson

50 years of Night of the Living Dead - an indie film, a cult classic, and the start of a long-running cultural obsession with zombies (even if they may not really be zombies)
[Note: when we rated the movie, I neglected to give my rating. I give it 8 out of 10. :-) -m]
