The annual Zombie Fest will start on Friday night, August 25th with the Horror Film Festival at The Atlas Theater with many entries, but an emphasis on the recently departed “Father of The Zombie Film,” George Romero’s “Night Of The Dead” and “Dawn Of The Dead.”


This 7th annual Zombie Fest is a benefit for The Cheyenne Little Theater Players who are bringing the dead early this year, to avoid a conflict with their season opener of “My Fair Lady.”
