Salem Horror Fest partners with the Peabody Essex Museum to bring you the ultimate kickoff to the Halloween season! Featuring PEM special exhibition, It’s Alive!: Classic Horror and Sci-Fi Art from the Kirk Hammett Collection, come haunt our inaugural Horror Fest with this night of live music, and interactive programming as part of the PEM/PM evening party series.
After-hours screening of Night of the Living Dead honoring Duane Jones with the inaugural Salem Horror Award begins at 9pm.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
America: The year is 1968. The Cold War is approaching détente, the Civil Rights Movement is winding down, Vietnam continues to escalate… And then come the zombies, creeping in through the cracks in American life. Taking shelter in an abandoned farm house, seven strangers must navigate their differences before the walls give way to a ravenous zombie horde.
* This screening will honor Duane Jones as the Salem Horror Award for his cultural contribution to the cinema as one of the first positive portrayals of a person of color on the big screen.
This event runs from 6-9 PM on Sept 22, 2017 at the Peabody Essex Museum.
