IT’S BACK!!! The living dead return from their graves and they’re ready to party… again!
Exhumed Films and the Mahoning Drive-In Theater present ZOMBIEFEST IX on Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-28)! Join us for four ferociously fun — and gory — nights of undead fright on 35mm!
This year we start off with a special Thursday night pre-show screening of Sam Raimi’s groovy 1992 horror-comedy masterpiece, ARMY OF DARKNESS!
On Friday night we will be joined by ventriloquist Nick Pawlow and Happy the Zombie from the 1987 VHS cult favorite MAD RON’S PREVIEWS FROM HELL! Nick, Happy and friends will perform a live ventriloquism show on stage at the drive-in prior to the start of the films! Afterwards Nick and Happy will be available for autographs and photo-ops!
Then, on Saturday night, everyone’s favorite movie zombie, “Bub” from DAY OF THE DEAD, actor Howard Sherman, will be in attendance meeting fans and signing autographs before a screening of the 1985 George A. Romero classic!
The ninth installment of ZOMBIEFEST promises to be one of the most entertaining events in the show’s history! In addition to the awesome line up of films and guests, there will be incredible limited edition event merch, raffles, live DJs, photo ops and MUCH MORE TBA! Get your tickets early for this one!
