GRIND HAÜS Halloween!: Dead Alive and Return of the Living Dead!

  • Turbo Haüs 5011 Rue Notre Dame Ouest Montréal, QC, H4C 1T2 Canada (map)

In the tradition of the notoriously gritty 42nd Street theaters of the 1980s, and their wild and vocal audiences, TURBO HAÜS brings you GRIND HAÜS, our monthly-ish celebration of cult cinema! Programmed and hosted by Justin Henry Langlois (Associate Programmer for the Fantasia Film Festival with an MA in Film from Concordia) and local heartthrob Alex Cartier (Turbo Haüs, Hashed Out)!

This month: it's our spooky scary Halloween party! We'll have a COSTUME CONTEST, a tasty SPOOKY PUNCH, a round of HORROR TRIVIA, and a zombie splatter double feature of DEAD ALIVE (aka BRAINDEAD) [1992] and THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD [1985]!

Peter Jackson's DEAD ALIVE (Braindead) [1992]. 
From the man who would one day bring us THE HOBBIT and THE LORD OF THE RINGS comes a blood and goo soaked zombie classic! Town dween Lionel Cosgrove (Timothy Balme) lives under the thumb of his domineering mother Vera (a never-better Elizabeth Moody). But when a Sumatran rat monkey bite turns Vera into one of the slimy undead, devoted son Lionel has to do everything he can to hide the growing zombie threat from the town and his new girlfriend Paquita (Diana Peñalver)! 

Dan O'Bannon's THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD [1985]. 
SEND MORE PARAMEDICS. The definitive punk zombie movie! Written and directed by Dan O'Bannon (Alien, Dark Star). In an effort to impress his new trainee Freddy (Thom Matthews), Uneeda Medical Supply Co. employee Frank (James Karen) accidentally releases a mysterious, military-grade toxic gas into the air, and into the nearby cemetery! Can Frank, Freddy, and Freddy's punk pals survive the night as the bodies start climbing from their graves? Also featuring brilliant character actors Clu Gulager and Don Calfa!

DOORS: 7:30PM
DEAD ALIVE: 8:00PM
[INTERMISSION] HORROR TRIVIA: 9:45PM
THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD: 10:00PM
