Horror fans know John Russo for ghoulish role in Night of the Living Dead, but few are familiar with the work of this legendary Pittsburgh filmmaker. On March 16th, the Hollywood Theater will highlight his career with a special double feature.
Besides co-writing the screenplay for George Romero‘s landmark film, Russo penned and helmed such low-budget fare as the cult hit Midnight, Santa Claws and Heartstopper. For this event, the Hollywood Theater will premiere his film The Mob Boss and the Soul Singer, which stars Chuck Corby, Quiet Storm, Debbie Rochon and wrestler Bruno Sammartino. Also included is a screening of The Song of the Dead, which stars Shari Richards, Norman Nardini and Justin Walton.
The event starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available for purchase at Showclix.
