With the passing of the equinox, fall is finally here. The sun and the warmth have begun their yearly retreat, giving the rain and the gloom free rein over the Seattle skies, and even here in the Evergreen State, soon the leaves of the city trees will be turning and bathing the streets in a red and gold carpet of autumnal splendor. But these things are just the backdrop. The real beauty is that for the next two months, the world will be ready to fully embrace its love of all things dark and scary and creepy.
In short, it’s zombie season.
Last weekend brought us a selection of horror shorts and a Norwegian zombie film at SIFF Cinema. This weekend is the 2010 Revenant Film Festival, an eight-hour marathon of indie zombie flicks. Of course, not everyone lives in the Zombie Capital of the World, but you can bet there’s something going on somewhere near you. Sometimes the smallest, most obscure events are the ones most worth attending… even if you have search a bit to find them. Happy hunting, friends!
