Scotty Johnson in the lead kicks zombie butt. A creatively-engineered and realistic set with some great effects, moody music and BLOODY ZOMBIES! Susan Carrillo Hall is also strong as the mind-blown female survivor. Funny, without being wink-wink,...continued

Unbelievably entertaining! That's the only description for this amazing stage adaptation. First, let me state that although campy in parts, the play does an effective job on the zombie gore.
We arrived to this out-of-the-way theater and were...continued

Fantastic and brilliant on stage performance of George A Romero's classic zombie fright fest that started it all. My husband and I have made attending an annual tradition for 4 years now. Honestly, it gets better and better year after year. ...continued

This was a terrific show. We've been to the Maverick many times but this is the first time we've seen this play. It's perfect for the Halloween season, with zombies warming up the crowd before the start. Lead actor was really excellent, and the...continued

I like the fact that the theater is small, and we are so close to the stage. The show was very entertaining. There are parts that are funny, and parts that make you jump out of your seats. It’s very entertaining, and we love the ending. I...continued

Much better than the movie. Only one act, total run time about 70 minutes. Lots of fun action toward the end. Go see it!

Very well done! It brought me back to seeing the movie as a teenage girl that was too cool for her screaming friends, so, I sat on top of a seat in the back of the balcony. The camera man knew just when to poke me in the ribs when a hand came...continued

Saw it a few years ago and enjoyed it so much that I decided to bring along new blood. Unfortunately, it was disappointing. Opened strong but it was downhill from there once the main characters stepped into the scene. Actors were not able to...continued

Very true to the Movie, the acting was great. The ambience of the lights out and walking in using flashlights and how close you were to to action was fantastic. A very good Halloween tradition to do.
