“They’re coming for you Barbra,” is what was heard on Friday, April 16 by classic movies lovers. SC4’s Zombie Defense Council, showed the 1968 cult classic “The Night of the Living Dead” to raise money.

Tickets were $5 and popcorn was included with admission. “The money raised goes towards future events sponsored by the group. One up coming event planned is capture the flag during stress breaker,” said Cody Kimball, Prime Minister of the ZDC.

21 people came to the movie which means they raised $105. Brian Johnston, Minister of War Games stated, “We were expecting anywhere from 20 to 30 people to come and we met our goal.” They were content that they were able to reach their goal.

“The Night of the Living Dead” is the grandfather of modern zombie movies,” said Kimball. And according to websites about zombies he is right.

Houseofhorrors.com states that is because before “The Night of the Living Dead,” zombie movies used voodoo to make the dead come alive and the zombies were slaves to a master.

“The Night of the Living Dead” creates a story of zombies coming back to life because of radiation and they serve no one, but their instincts.

Everyone who came seemed to be having a great time. When else does a chance come up to see a classic movie on the big screen?

Siobhan Maloney of St. Clair said, “I thought it would be cool to see the movie on a big screen. I wish they would keep playing classic movies like this.”

Zack Fisher, of Fort Gratiot, said, “I thought the movie was funny and ironic in some part, but very good.”
