Celebrate Halloween with RiffTrax Live: Night of the Living Dead in Select TheatersJust in time for Halloween, NCM Fathom Events, RiffTrax, and IGN resurrect the zombie film that started it all as RiffTrax Live: Night of the Living Dead comes to more than 600 select cinemas nationwide for one night only, October 24th, 2013. Read on for all the gory details.

Event Details:
The “RiffTrax Live” cinema series has been racking in the “LOLs” and “ROTFLs” with its celebrated comedic treatment of films since 2009. This fall the stars of RiffTrax—Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett (best known for the groundbreaking “Mystery Science Theater 3000”)—are back for a hilarious never-before-seen take on the George Romero zombie movie Night of the Living Dead. Movie theater audiences will witness shambling zombies (and lead actors alike) meeting their end via razor-sharp mockery, as NCM Fathom Events, RiffTrax, and IGN present “RiffTrax Live: Night of the Living Dead” on Thursday, October 24th, live at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT and tape delayed at 7:00 p.m. MT / 8:00 p.m. PT/HI/AK.

Tickets for “RiffTrax Live: Night of the Living Dead” are available at participating theater box offices and online at FathomEvents.com. The event will be broadcast to more than 600 select movie theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

“Halloween is a time to celebrate the simple things: neighbor kids begging at your door, cleaning splattered eggs off your car window, and of course, laughing along with the classic zombie movie that kick-started the genre. We’re thrilled to be riffing along with a great print of this much-loved film!” said Michael J. Nelson, RiffTrax creator and former host of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”

A classic horror film, 1968’s Night of the Living Dead kicked off the ubiquitous zombie craze. The movie begins when Barbra and her brother, Johnny, travel to the countryside to visit their father’s gravestone. In the cemetery Johnny is murdered by a peculiar man and Barbara must flee to an abandoned farmhouse. Also hiding from the zombies in the house is Ben, who boards up the doors and windows. After listening to the radio and learning that a satellite returning from space has reanimated the dead, Ben and Barbara discover five additional survivors hidden in the basement. Harry—one of the ragtag band of survivors—disagrees with Ben’s leadership, and the tension between the two men intensifies. As the group waits out the apocalypse, the house is besieged by an increasing throng of living dead.

“An evening at the movie theater with RiffTrax Live is always a hilarious and fun experience,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Seeing the guys fire their wisecracking commentary at Night of the Living Dead on the big screen is a must-see for everyone’s Halloween to-do list.”

    I secured my ticket the day they went on sale 🙂

    Outside of ‘Birdemic’ (missed because i was at a meeting) I think I’ve been to every one of their shows since 2007. It’s been a total blast each time and all of them have been sold out.

    The GM at the theater I normally go to (knew her when she was 1st assitant at another building) told me she had to open a second auditorium for Manos! It was the first Rifftrax under her tenure and she shocked at how well it did. She had two auditoriums ready for Birdemic and sold both out.

    I made sure to get to Starship Troopers at like 6, first person in line and there was only about 12 folks behind me at 7 when we got seated. 200 seat house though was filled by 7:30.

    I just went to the last Rifftrax Live event of Starship Troopers (amazingly enough, it was the first time I ever saw the movie). Anyway, I didn’t know what to expect, I thought the theater would be empty. I mean, how many fans of MST3K can really still be out there?

    Well, word of advice, if you’re going, GO EARLY. The place was almost sold out. If there was 5 empty seats, I’d be surprised. It was riot and the crowd was awesome. Highly recommended. I won’t make the same mistake twice. This time, I’ll be getting a seat at least 45 minutes early.
