Five college kids of drinking age are vacationing in the woods, AKA the outskirts of South Federal Highway, near the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The cabin, called the Monterey Club, where they had been enjoying beer, cider, and wine, has now become possessed. Creepy things lurk around the cushy couches, the pool table, perhaps the bar. They stand demonically on top of the animal-print rugs. Theyre zombies. Yes, even those college kids. Thursday, this rockabilly/retro-themed bar will be full of the evil dead. So smear the blood. Dismember a limb by taping your right arm to your side, because the Promethean Theatre is trekking over to Monterey for an Evil Dead Zombie Prom Fundraiser. The Promethean Theatre needs blood and props for its upcoming theater production Evil Dead the Musical, opening August 20, which mixes the classic cult films Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness into one fun musical stage play. See the musical, but first become a zombie yourself. Besides conducting a few giveaways, Tates Comics will host an Evil Dead Zombie costume contest. There will also be a special appearance by Taso Stavrakis, who is known as the most killed zombie in Day and Dawn of the Dead as well as appearances by the cast of Evil Dead the Musical. The guest DJ will be Radio-Active Records' Mike Ramirez, who is well-known for providing a killer soundtrack to the night. Bash starts at 9 p.m. at the Monterey Club (2608 S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale). Entry is $5, and all that pay goes to obtaining blood and fun killing stuff, so to a good cause... well, in this case. Call 954-598-1887, or visit themontereyclub.net.
