Silver Spring Zombie Walk Returns Oct. 29

The Silver Spring Zombie Walk will return on Saturday, October 29, according to an announcement from the Silver Spring Urban District.

The event will kick off at 6 p.m. at Denizens Brewing Co. with music, face painting, & a costume contest. The pre-walk gathering is free and family-friendly; outrageous costumes are strongly encouraged.

The walk from Denizens, over the pedestrian bridge on Georgia, to Ellsworth Drive and the pedestrian walkway, will begin around 9 p.m.

AFI Silver will be screening two films that night:

Count Gore de Vol presents A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)
Sat, Oct. 29, 7:00 p.m. — $15/$13 AFI Members

Join us for some creepy good fun when local TV legend Count Gore de Vol (Dick Dyszel) returns to present another horror favorite in the spirit of the original CREATURE FEATURE broadcasts, including vintage clips from the Count’s vault and some interactive fun and games. “One, two, Freddy’s coming for you!” High schooler Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) and friends (including Johnny Depp in his feature film debut) face off against the deadly finger-knives of dreamland boogeyman Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund, here avoiding the camp characterization that would mark his performances in the sequels). This terrifying film launched one of the most successful horror franchises in history, including nine features and a series. Director Wes Craven creatively stages the dream sequences and expertly ratchets up the tension leading to a breakneck finale. DIR/SCR Wes Craven; PROD Robert Shaye. U.S., 1984, color, 91 min. RATED R

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW — Live shadowcast by Bloody Mayhem Theatrical
Sat, Oct. 29, 10:00 p.m. — $15/$13 AFI Members

Recently engaged Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) stumble upon a castle in the middle of the night that is definitely not a hunting lodge for “rich weirdos.” A jump to the left and a step to the right later, they find themselves as guests of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), who does his best to make them “shiver with anticipation” at what he has in store for everyone at the Annual Transylvanian Convention. A satirical, musical tribute to classic science fiction and horror B-movies, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has become a beacon and a touchstone, and for generations of fans young and old, a way of life. DIR/SCR Jim Sharman; SCR Richard O’Brien, from his musical play; PROD Michael White. UK/U.S., 1975, color, 100 min. RATED R
