Humor Meets Horror At Arcade Comedy Theater’s Halloween Weekend


People love a good scare on Halloween, but a few laughs wouldn’t hurt either. This October, fear takes a backseat at Arcade Comedy Theater, where zombies, witches, and ghosts meet some local comedians for a weekend of horror movie-related fun.

Oct. 24th

B-Movie Bash Ink & Paint Club


Join local comedy duo Ink & Paint Club as they heckle the locally produced 2001 film Children of the Living Dead. The unofficial sequel to George Romero‘s Night of the Living Dead follows a young businessman who arrives in a rural Pennsylvania town to fulfill his father’s wishes of developing an old cemetery. When he tries to relocate the bodies, however, his actions awaken an evil presence that, 14 years earlier, had unleashed a zombie army on the local populace. Before long, the undead rise once again to terrorize the countryside and feast on the living. The film is noteworthy for featuring Tom Savini in a small, but unforgettable role as a trigger-happy zombie hunter. For a taste of all the riff-worthy goodness to come, see the clip below:

The show begins at 10 p.m. Admission is a $5 donation at the box office.

Oct. 25th and 26th
