“Films and Finger Foods” Presents “Night of the Living Dead”


The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series presents the first “Films and Finger Foods” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 29 in the Del and Norma Robison Planetarium.

The feature film will be the 1968 horror classic “Night of the Living Dead,” an American independent horror and cult film directed by George A. Romero starring Duane Jones, Judith O'Dea and Karl Hardman. The story follows a group of people who are trapped in a farmhouse in western Pennsylvania, which is under attack by an enlarging group of undead ghouls. The undead eventually finds ways inside and the group must fight for survival.

Craig Higgins, host of the podcast “Two Guys and a Chainsaw,” will provide background information on the horror genre and give insight on what makes “Night of the Living Dead” special within it. Higgins and Todd Kuhns started “Two Guys and a Chainsaw” in 2016 as two die-hard horror fans and have since published more than 200 episodes. In their podcast they discuss one horror film a week, in depth and with humor and fun. They select a wide range of horror films for their listeners and occasionally have had feature guests such as horror icons Linnea Quigley and Bill Oberst Jr.

Halloween-themed snacks will be served in Magruder Hall prior to the show. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Tickets can be reserved by calling the Advancement Office at 660.785.4133.
