Evil Dead 2 at Red Hot tonight

According to a dry erase sign behind the bar the Red Hot will be screening the classic horror film Evil Dead 2 tonight at 8pm with a raffle afterwards.

I for one am definitely going to be there. Evil Dead 2 is one of a Raimi's best flicks and a perfect example of well executed Type 5 cinematic zombies.

Better know Your Zombie!

Soul swallowing zombies are created following the reading of unholy texts, tree rape or the ingestion of previously possessed zombie body parts. Often an immediate physical mutation occurs, resulting in a fast moving zombie. Similar to the alien parasite zombie, the soul swallowing zombie's purpose is to perpetuate the collective of possessed zombies. While not necessarily intelligent or cunning, they do possess the ability of speech and will taunt or "bully" humans in an effort to enrage or enfrenzy them. They can and will murder the human in question following the taunting.

HOW TO KILL IT: Fairly easy to kill, the soul swallower can usually be stopped by dismemberment with a chain saw or other rotary power cutting tool. Care must be taken to dispose of the body parts correctly, through burning or burial in consecrated ground, to prevent further re-possession, tree rape or zombie part ingestion.

I'm there...though from the look of current weather conditions, I will probably have to go home and get the Jeep. Sigh.

I was already planning to be there with my two houseguests... even more so when I asked Megan and learned that it was a zombie theme month, and even more more so now that I know which particular film it is.

Ooo, I may have to stop by. I'll go home and get the Vespa -- damn the weather! Put on some rain gear and join the gang, Wayward. Dawn, you still planning on brining Snowflake? AP, how 'bout your loaner?

Oh, I will be there one way or the other. But if I bring the Scarabeo (will you do the fandango...) I wouldn't necessarily let myself have beer. Hard to decide...

Crap, 8pm -- not supposed to be riding my rig after dark. Guess I could stay for an hour or so.

@Warward: Plenty of good Jones to be had. And don't forget all the yummy Jaritos flavors!

by WaywardScooterGirl on 6/5/2008 @ 3:46pm
Yeah, I'm not supposed to be riding after dark either.

@Wayward: It's settled then. See you tonight!

Any reason to go to TRH. I'm gonna try to make it in time for the epilogue. Hopefully before they put the hot dogs away. Will bring my old 12V Makita rotary cutter just in case it's a trap.

Lovely weather we're having. Sure hope the other scooterers still plan to represent...
