Description: The New Beverly Midnights screens one of the theatre’s Employee Picks (Vinny’s). The 1985 punk-rock-comedy-horror film takes up where NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD left off – sort of. What started out as a direct sequel, written by John Russo, turned into something very different in the hands of director Dan O’Bannon, who also rewrote the script. It’s funny and outrageous, carving out its own niche instead of aping the original.
