First things first: it might be called the All Night Film Fest, but Metro Arts' upcoming movie marathon only runs for eight hours. Still, it will take you from afternoon to evening with a heap of flicks, and it'll be tomorrow when you get out.
Also, the November 3 event will serve up five retro movies for free, which isn't something to sneeze at. No bookings are required — just turn up from 4pm and prepare to get comfy, all as part of the venue's returning Deathfest.
Yes, Deathfest is a festival that's all about the end that comes for us all. Yes, All Night Film Fest is playing movies that contemplate the theme of death, all in different ways. It kicks off with Night of the Living Dead, aka the zombie classic that all other zombie films owe a huge debt to, then veers from the man-eating plants of Little Shop of Horrors, to the otherworldly thrills of Eternal Evil, to the comedy-horror of The Driller Killer. Finishing up the night is The Brain that Wouldn't Die, and yes, the title of this sci-fi effort is aptly descriptive.
