BETA MAX TV’S NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION CONTINUES!!!
(DAY 2 – Beware Theater with Arachna of the Spider People)
It’s the second day of the Beta Max TV celebration of the 50th anniversary of the classic horror movie NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD! On this day (October 3) fifty years ago, the film had already shaken, surprised, and fascinated viewers at its October 1st premier in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was poised to be released in various locations across the country on October 4th, Although never referring to the ravenous risen revelers as “zombies” (they were called “ghouls”), the walking dead in the NOTLD would become the zombie benchmark for countless cavorting carnivorous cadaver movies from then on.
In Day 2 of our celebration, we feature a presentation of NOTLD from one of our staples here at Beta Max TV – Beware Theater with Arachna of the Spider People and her fleshless friend Deadly. Arachna puts her own seasonings on this feast of fright and has a visit from a hungry ghoulish guest. But oh my – the clean-up after a zombie party! Arachna could use a hand. Luckily, there are several laying around (and feet and arms and….).
And here’s our little tidbit of trivia for Day 2! Flesh-eating Fun-Fact #2: most of the music heard during the movie was borrowed from the soundtrack of the 1959 sci-fi B-classic “Teenagers From Outer Space”.
So gather up your favorite body parts, make sure your truck is gassed up BEFORE the zombies get to your house, and enjoy Arachna’s Beware Theater presentation of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD on Day 2 of our Beta Max TV NOTLD 50th Anniversary Celebration!!!
