“Night of the Living Dead” Film Showing
Peabody Essex Museum - 161 Essex St. Salem, MA
Friday, September 22nd, 2017

America: The year is 1968. The Cold War is approaching détente, the Civil Rights Movement is winding down, Vietnam continues to escalate… And then come the zombies, creeping in through the cracks in American life. Taking shelter in an abandoned farm house, seven strangers must navigate their differences before the walls give way to a ravenous zombie horde.

Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead) will accept the first-ever Salem Horror Award on behalf of Duane Jones for his cultural contribution to the cinema as one of the first positive representations of a person of color on the big screen.

Film will be shown at the Peabody Essex Museum, and tickets when available may be purchased online.
