Happy Halloween Events in Washington DC
One of the best things about living in our nation's capital is that there's never a shortage of things to see and do. Even better than that, though, is that there's never a shortage of things to see and do during major holiday seasons, such as Halloween. Here are two upcoming cinema-centric Halloween events that might be of interest to all horror hounds who happen to be in the DC area:
Silver Spring Zombie Walk: This Saturday at 7:30 pm, there's going to be a zombie walk in downtown Silver Spring, MD. This event is open to all of the walking, shambling, and lurching undead who are interested in participating. The walk will conclude at the AFI Silver Theatre, with a showing of the original Dawn of the Dead--how cool is that for a zombie event?

The 5th Annual Washington DC International Horror Film Festival: Starting this week, three movie theatres in the DC area will be showing a diverse selection of horror movie shorts and feature-length films, including an all-day movie marathon on Sunday, October 24 in Fairfax, VA.
