<drop_initial>I<TypographyTag1>t’s the flick that launched a million zombies. George Romero’s 1968 cult classic, <TypographyTag11>Night of the Living Dead</TypographyTag11>, spawned a genre of unholy — and undead — cannibals. In an interview for AMC, Romero said he got his idea for the movie when he got to thinking about how tricky and frightening your neighbors can be. Then he thought about how tricky and frightening they’d be if they died, reanimated and got a serious case of the munchies for <TypographyTag12>braaaaaaains</TypographyTag12>. You can catch the movie on the small screen this month, multiple times. You can see the classic get the RiffTrax Live treatment at 7 p.m. Oct. 24 at the Denton Cinemark 14, 2825 Wind River Lane. Audiences will get to see Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett — some of the folks behind Mystery Science Theatre 3000 — comment on the film as they watch it. Tickets cost $11.50 for adults, $10.50 for students and seniors 62 and older, and $9.50 for children. For reservations, visit http://bit.ly/18jBBdv.</TypographyTag1>
