I was 6 years old when I saw my first zombie. Though it was only a 30-second television commercial for George Romero's 1968 cult classic Night of the Living Dead, I was mesmerized and terrified by the black-and-white images of zombies slowly staggering through a graveyard. Romero's classic and its sequels spawned hordes of zombie films. Most settle for imitation, but some achieve a cult following of their own, like Lucio Fulci's gore-fest Zombi 2. Thursday night only, the Dallas Cinemania Film Society presents a screening of Zombi 2 at the Angelika Film Center, 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $8.
