ZRC at B-Movie Madness

(Pictures from B-Movie Madness will follow in an upcoming post)

So your humble ZRC representatives went to the B-Movie Madness 2 film festival this weekend in grey, chilly Chicago, and a good time was had by all.

First we would like to offer up thanks to our hosts The Horror Society, who ran a fun and effective gathering for horror movie fans and consumers of fine merchandise. We picked up a few items ourselves from the other vendors/activists, as a matter of fact.

The ZRC got in a lot of great networking, and we talked to any number of individuals. We passed out many copies of our new informational pamphlet, ‘Zombie Rights and You’ (PDF to be posted online shortly), and sold a number of our ZRC pro-Zombie items of merchandizing. One item in particular was well-received, though I’ll save it for a surprise in a following post. Suffice it to say it is new, it is Pro-Zombie, and it GLOWS IN THE DARK.

How cool is that? I love things that glow in the dark.

The film festival was held in the historic, and gorgeous, Portage Theatre on North Milwaukee Avenue. I heartily recommend seeing a film there, for it harkens back to the so-called Golden Age of cinema, which sadly produced a large number of anti-Zombie films (mostly involving Voodoo zombies). Still, the immense vaulted ceiling, gorgeous interior work and old fashioned accoutrements are a charming backdrop to any film. Concessions specialize in alcoholic beverages for patrons of a legal age, and I’m told that their White Russian is very tasty.

Well, that’s about it for now. Some photographic posts will be coming as soon as I’ve worked on the images with the old image editing software, but I thought a quick text update for now would slake your thirst for Zombie News
