The Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo Tees has returned again with another cool horror movie poster for their Rolling Roadshow screening of Dawn of the Dead. That’s right, they’re taking the movie, and screening it in the mall in Monroeville where the movie was filmed. How cool is that? I wish I could attend.

The screening takes place on June 21st, as part of the upcoming HorrorHound Weekend event in Pennsylvania the weekend of June 20-22nd, 2008. The screening will take place where the Monroeville Mall’s old clock tower once stood, on a 50-foot screen, which will take over the Mall after closing time, Saturday June 21st. Over 500 fans will pack this special section of the Mall. Admission to this special screening is available at the HorrorHound Weekend event for only $5, with all proceeds going to charity. Toe Tag Pictures will be doing zombie make-up on guests all day leading up to the screening and over ten Dawn alumni will be on-hand. Read more on OriginalAlamo.com.
Printed on 100lb white art paper, James Rheem Davis’s poster is 24×34, limited edition, signed and numbered. Regular version sells for $30. Do you see that picture on the top of the poster? I’m told that isn’t a screen grab, it’s actually all hand drawn? Insane.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

The photo above of Jeff Anderson and Seth Rogen comes from Kevin Smith‘s upcoming comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno. When the photo was released last month, I commented on the cool Monroeville Zombies hockey jersey, and concluded that it would probably eventually be available to order on Kevin Smith’s online store. And now guess what, you can now buy the same style hockey jersey seen on screen during the movie.

This jersey is cool on a bunch of different levels. If you’re a fan of George Romero, than you understand the significance of Monroeville. You see, Monroeville is a suburban area about 5-10 miles Northeast of the city of Pittsburgh, PA. Not only was Zack and Miri shot and set in Monroeville, but much of the George A. Romero horror classic Dawn of the Dead was filmed at Monroeville Mall (also a location in Smith’s film). So the Hockey Jersey is also a tribute to the area and a homage to Romero.

That said, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash is selling the jerseys for $54.99, sized L to XXXL.
