Texas Theatre pries Night of the Living Dead's coffin lid open with Birth of the Living Dead, a perfectly unexpected documentary. Catch it all weekend long. The Symphony's giving an all-Hitchcock show and Philip Freakin' Glass channels Bela Lugosi in Fort Worth on Tuesday.

Not your style? All right. How about comedy by Whitney Cummings, Dylan Moran, Paul Varghese, @DadBoner and Kathleen Madigan? There's also a War of the Worlds parody, a Halloween visit by Master Pancake, great art shows, opera, barbecue and even a filmmaking competition.

Let's do this.

Click on the event links for more information and share this list with your undead party posse. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one covered in fake blood, tapping on your passenger window.)

Thursday 10.24 Dallas Observer Comedy Pub Crawl, with Paul Varghese and Friends -- Consider this an experiment. We've gotten together with Varghese to take you on a totally free, drunk tour of stand up through Deep Ellum. He and two other comics will each do a quick set at The Green Room (8 p.m.), then unplug the mic, grab the stool and take it to Anvil. From there we'll stumble to Twilite, ending at Three Links -- with new material performed at each spot. There's no cover, just pay your bar tabs. You're welcome.
