This event is going to be a blast and the presenters want all Romero fans in and around the Los Angeles area to come out this Friday to celebrate George's latest film. They also want ZOMBIES!
Fifty zombies showed up to the world premiere screening at the Toronto International Film Festival and they were truly a sight to behold. Now they want the undead to take over Hollywood. Promotoers will be taking photos of the event to post online, so come out and show your zombie pride.
