Hamilton Zombie Walk 2011 + DEAD GENESIS Screening
It's time! It's time! Dust off the old funeral tux and shake out the burial shroud. It's time to get gorgeous and gory for the 5th Annual Hamilton Zombie Walk and Charity Food Drive (presented by Horror in the Hammer).
DATE: October 29th @ Gore Park (starting at 2pm).
Join the Hamilton Horde for another year of Halloween horror and help us take a bite out of hunger by bringing a donation of nonperishable food items to Gore Park. All donations will go to support local food bank. Don't forget to donate some food before you take to the town in search of brains!
WALK ROUTE: Zombies will depart Gore Park around 2pm, shambling North on James St N, down York, and then to Dundurn Castle.
POST-WALK FESTIVITIES - SCREENING AND RAFFLES
After the walk, FRIGHT NIGHT THEATER will be screening the excellent Canadian zombie film DEAD GENESIS at The Staircase (27 Dundurn Street North L8R 3C9)
Seven months have passed since the dead took over. Many cities and states have been abandoned and left to die. Several self sufficient hunting groups have been established to take on the threat in a war aptly referred to as the 'War on Dead'. Jillian Hurst, a former news writer and amateur documentarian, has set out to make a pro-war propaganda film to support the W.O.D. She joins up with a pack of renegade hunters known infamously to North America as 'the deadheads'. The moral dynamics and hardships of fighting in a war against the undead are told from several different perspectives.
Screening begins at 4:30pm.
Admission: $5 zombies, $10 humans. Discounted rate for children.
Admission is for access to The Staircase Theatre for the movie. Raffle tickets for zombie prizes will be sold separately at The Staircase.
AFTER DARK FESTIVITIES
CORKTOWN PUB: Do you want to party? Well, it's party time at the Corktown Pub (175 Young Street). Come join your fellow undead and check out the live bands and have a few drinks. Hamilton zombies get a $5 discount at the door.
