Welcome back! For the second week of our Halloween movie marathon we're ramping things up with some classics and foundational films in horror's various sub-genres. So prepare yourself! You're in for a fun week of ghosts, zombies, slashers, and the first Bollywood horror movie
Monday, October 5th- Night of the Living Dead (1968)
With this film, writer/director George Romero and his co-writer, John A. Russo, redefined pop culture's understanding of zombies. The rules established here are the inspiration for almost every bit of zombie lore and story that came after.

Tuesday, October 6th-Mahal (1949)
