Right in the middle of the The Center in Long Beach-sponsored Q Films LGBT festival--which began Thursday and continues through Sunday in Long Beach--is a horror flick that includes a gay couple fighting zombies.
But Mondo Celluloid's presentation of Zombies of Mass Destruction at 11:30 tonight at the Art Theatre is not part of Q Films and festival passes cannot be used for admission (although The Center will gladly take donations from attendees).
Taking cues from America's current political, religious and cultural clashes, Zombies of Mass Destruction is set in the idyllic island town of Port Gamble, which is overrun with brain-eaters. Traditional zombie thriller stereotypes are honored and mocked in director Kevin Hamedani's flick.
Here's the film's website: zmdthemovie.com.
Here's where you can buy tickets online: arttheatrelongbeach.com. (Go to the Art's 9:20 p.m. showing of The Social Network to create a brain-eating zombie double bill!)
