"The Tell-Tale Heart" is a short story (adapted play) by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1843. It is told by an unnamed narrator (Stanley Seay) who endeavors to convince the reader of his sanity, while describing a murder he committed.
As a tribute to the late, great horror director George A. Romero (who passed away earlier this year), we will be screening his 1968 cult horror film, Night of the Living Dead on Saturday Oct 28 at 8:00pm! Shot outside of Pittsburgh at a fraction of the cost of a Hollywood feature by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is one of the great stories of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of flesh-eating ghouls newly arisen from their graves, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-sixties America (literally) tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in the lead role.
