The monster-movie double feature is a summer tradition than can only be improved by moving it outdoors. And looky here: Cinema St. Louis and Front Yard Features have done just that for tonight's Zombie Double Feature
at the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street; 314-289-4150 or www.cinemastlouis.org
). It's true! Feast your eyes on two locally made movies about the hungry, hungry dead. First up is Blind Cat Black
, Chris King's silent film interpretation of Ece Ayhan's poem of the same title, and it stars a host of familiar St. Louis faces. After that is Song of the Dead
, Chip Guber's film about the dread 1,000-year mosquito awakening, a biting plague of biblical proportions. The government's super-potent insecticide is sprayed liberally to forestall the insect holocaust, but the toxin instead raises the dead. Great, mosquitoes and
zombies: That's just what a St. Louis summer needs. The movies start around 9 p.m., and admission is free.
