Skeeters and Brain Eaters 

It's an undead summer

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 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. PHOTO BY JUSTIN POWERS
