Spooktober

There are two holidays that I really love:

Halloween and April Fool's

Sure Christmas is nice and getting together with friends or family can be fun at Thanksgiving, but both of them have been overtaken taken by commercialism.
You might say Halloween has gone 'commercial' as well, but you can still dress up and spook-ify your home without having to buy a lot of crap to do it.

Anyway, all this brings me to what I wanted to post about...
The Seattle Children's Theater is putting on a performance of "Night Of the Living Dead".

While not quite the topic you'd expect for children, this is (admittedly) geared more for the 13 yr. old and older crowd, complete with a zombie dance number.

I'm trying to talk Hotness into going, but I think it would be great to get everyone from the Comic Stop Social Club to go as a group.
What could be more fun than a group of geeks going to watch a bunch of zombies on stage?
It's almost poetic in it's beauty.
Anybody interested?

In related news:
The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) cinema is presenting some classic horror films the week before Halloween in their theater (located below the McCaw Hall).
They are playing "Frankenstein / Bride of Frankenstein", "I Walked with a Zombie", "Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", "Freaks", and "Rosemary's Baby" among others.

I'd like to make these shows, but since most of them fall during a weeknight I don't think I can.
But if anybody is interested in seeing these great films, here's a good opportunity to catch them fairly inexpensively.
