Film Notes: Look out! Zombies ... washing cars
Share with others:
George Romero has put zombies through their paces for the past four decades. Now, indie filmmaker Jake Mulliken will make them wash cars, to raise money for a 30-minute zombie short called "Meltdown" he plans to shoot in Pittsburgh in August.
Zombies, in zombie makeup by Monroeville's Joe Davis of Davis FX, will be stationed in Iron Workers Local Union No. 3 parking lot, 2201 Liberty Ave., from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday to wash cars. Suggested donation, $5, with 10 percent being given to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
The event also will include zombie face painting, a zombie grill master and zombie DJ, sale of desserts, T-shirts and the chance to win a role in the short being made by Mr. Mulliken's company, Indee Loft. The event will be held rain or shine.
Sandy Schklair, script supervisor and possible real director of "The Room," will field questions before a 10:30 p.m. showing of the movie today at the Hollywood Theater, 1449 Potomac Ave., Dormont. "The Room" is sometimes considered the worst movie ever made.
Online features editor Sharon Eberson and I discuss "Magic Mike," "Ted," "Lola Versus" and "People Like Us" on the Rated PG podcast at old.post-gazette.com/movies.
