RiffTrax Live: Octaman

Thu., April 18, 7 p.m.
,

After 31 years of mocking terrible films for the amusement of audiences, you'd think the RiffTrax/Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew would be out of bad movies. Instead, the RiffTrax guys keep turning up stinkers. RiffTrax Live: Octaman will see Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy dogging the 1971 octopoid tragedy Octaman for a national audience at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at the Marcus Wehrenberg Ronnies Cine (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; www.fathomevents.com). Writer/director Harry Essex's film is about an irradiated octopus man (created by special effects genius Rick Baker, then very young) who seeks revenge on the scientists who stole its offspring. Never before has a guy in a rubber suit with flimsy tentacles terrorized such a large audience. Tickets for the live broadcast are $15.67. $15.67

Return of the Living Dead

Thu., April 18, 7:30 p.m.
,

Dan O'Bannon's Return of the Living Dead is not really a sequel to Night of the Living Dead, although the original script for it was written by Night's John Russo. O'Bannon punched up the story with comedy and a slightly lighter touch with the horror. A pair of medical supply company employees in Louisville, Kentucky, accidentally release the remains of a botched military experiment, infecting a nearby graveyard. A group of vintage 1980s punks are hanging out in the cemetery when the dead start crawling out of their graves, which sets off the requisite fight for survival. Return of the Living Dead's zombies pioneered the whole "eating brains" thing, which adds that extra frisson of excitement to the proceedings, as does the soundtrack of classic punk, which includes the Cramps, 45 Grave and T.S.O.L. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $5 to $7. $5-$7
