presented by the Desert Classic Film Society


The DESERT CLASSIC FILM SOCIETY will be presenting the original 1968 film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD on Friday, October 26 at 7 p.m. at the Bijou Cinema in Yucca Valley.

It's Zombie month at the Bijou. This is the original "gut churning" classic from 1968. Considered to be the most important horror film in the last 50 years. Film director John Carpenter stated, "His work has influenced every major director in the horror genre since 1968".

Film historian Christopher Perry will introduce the film talking about the amazing back story of the making and distribution of this film.

We will be screening an original film print from 1968(the original work print from this movie was destroyed when the basement it was being stored in was flooded-the same basement seen in the movie).

WARNING: This film is graphic and is not for the "faint of heart".
