When: Fri., Dec. 25, 12-10 p.m. 2009
Christmas is a fairly horrific time of year. You put on ten pounds. You contract seasonal affective disorder (SAD). You spend several days in ecclesiastical sequestry. You're confined to a room with family members, oohing and aahing while words that could be written are burning out your eyeballs. In short, it's a holiday much better spent watching zombie movie marathons. This Christmas, Pirate Cat Radio provides the opportunity for just that, with a Zombie X-Mas Film Festival that includes screenings of I Walked with a Zombie, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Zombie, Braindead, and Wild Zero. Representing a range of eras and themes (from the quotidian to the socially progressive), these films are a welcome alternative to the usual Frank Capra fare. Popcorn, eggnog, and hot toddies provided. Friday, Dec. 25, noon-10 p.m., free.PirateCatRadio.com.
