While September is a couple months away, and I certainly don’t wish to rush you out of your summer time blues, an important event is upon us. September 29, 2012 at the Hi-Way Drive-In in Coxsackie, NY an audience will be treated to an all night Zombiefest featuring some of the greatest films of the undead generation. If you were blissfully unaware of this event get ready for the post-apocalypse you truly deserve.
First off FaceBookies, go HERE , like the page and follow along for yourself. There’s no reason to believe a damn word I say. It’s all there, black and white, clear as crystal (do not steal the fizzy lifting drinks or the bath salts). Also make sure to stop by www.hiwaydrivein.com. $10 Admission. Rain or Shine.
And the reason we bring it up now during the Italian Horror Week is because the entire line up this year is ITALIAN ZOMBIE GOODNESS!!! So from dusk ‘till Dawn you might as well get your Vespa out and say Ciao to everyone you meet while waiting for the glory that is drive-in zombie horror done properly.
Films to be shown:
CITY OF THE WALKING DEAD
NIGHT OF THE ZOMBIES
THE GATES OF HELL
The poster for this event boasts “rare Italian horror previews shown on 35mm preceding each feature” which was very similar to the Italian Splatterfest at the Colonial Theater in Phoenixville, PA. I can assure you that was a real treat. The poster also states:
“An all-Night gross-out Zombiethon of gory, gut-munching, Italian living dead horror classics!” (holy hypenation!).
“Don’t miss this incredible splatterfic program on the giant drive-in screen!”
Folks, as the poster says, the dead shall rise and sit in their cars… or rather walk the earth. Make sure to check out the concession stand! Go out to the lobby. Get yourself some brains. Make out with your best girl or guy or blow up doll. Go out and see a movie!
Zombiefest rules #1, #2 and #3 respectively: No face eating by anyone who is not undead. If you must detach your testicles, please stay away from the concession stand. Do not throw your intestines at law enforcement.

Words to live by.... or undead by. Whatever you're into.
