Rue Morgue’s CineMacabre Movie Nights promise the best of classic and contemporary horror at The Royal Cinema – once a month, every month.
Considered to be one of the goriest and funniest horror film since Evil Dead 2, CineMacabre is pleased to present a special Halloween screening of Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive to celebrate our 25th anniversary! The film follows the nerdy and socially awkward Lionel, who must contend with his domineering mother as he pursues a romantic relationship with the shopkeeper’s daughter, Paquita. When his mom is bitten by a rabid rat-monkey, Lionel unwittingly unleashes a horrific epidemic with disastrous and hilarious results.
Dead Alive was a box office flop 25 years ago, but quickly became a cult favourite amongst gore-heads and splatstick fans for its sheer, unadulterated assault on the senses that culminates in an unforgettable house party sequence. A veritable orgy of blood and guts with (dare we say) some of the most iconic special effects in Jackson’s filmography, Dead Alive is not to be missed on the big screen!
