Hey gang, it's not often that I am so completely blown away by something that it inspires me to action. A few months ago, I ran across this video of the "Mondo Mystery Movie Nine" featuring a super-secret screening of 1978's zombie classic; "Dawn of The Dead", complete with 200 rampaging zombies, a mock SWAT team and George Romero himself! Check out the video below if you don't believe me!
For those of you not in the know, Mondo presents classic films with a twist; the location is always different, and the film is a very well-kept secret right up until the film rolls. They make in a real event by having people dress up as characters from the films (as seen above), and scare the Hell out of those brave souls who hold a ticket. And to top it off, they sell limited edition posters and t-shirts by some of the finest artists of the day.
I absolutely love every aspect of this, and plan on taking 3-D Monster out of the interwebs and into the real world by planning a series of film events, very much like Mondo, but with my own, unique twist! I envision live music, special guests, thrills and chills, movie-themed food and a full bar! I'll keep you guys posted as the date for the first event draws near. I already have an idea of what I want to do for the first film, and hope to have it ready by late Spring or early Summer.
