Night of the Dead

Film description

Five strangers are drawn to a run down cinema where they find themselves on screen, starring in films that depict their deepest fears and darkest secrets. From a twisted take on the slasher in the woods story to the risks of plastic surgery, these five dark, disturbing, gory and blackly funny tales are curated by The Projectionist, in a creepy performance from Mickey Rourke. Master of Horror, Mick Garris, brings together four other revered horror directors (Alejandro Brugués, Joe Dante, Ryûhei Kitamura & David Slade) in this anthology film reminiscent of the classic Creepshow films.
