Watch Dawn of the Dead with a live soundtrack

'Dawn of the Dead' is widely considered one of the greatest zombie horror films of all time. So, the chance to watch it again, accompanied by a live performance from Italian rock band Goblin – who wrote the original soundtrack for George Romero's 1978 classic – is an opportunity that movie buffs, horror fans and '70s progressive rock enthusiasts will not want to miss.

This very special Halloween event takes place at Boxxed on October 29 and will see Claudio Simonetti's Goblin - the latest of many incarnations of the band - performing alongside the movie screening.

A follow-up to Romero's late '60s horror 'Night of the Living Dead', 'Dawn of the Dead' sees the bulk of the action take place within a shopping mall, where a collection of survivors have holed themselves up from the undead hordes.

Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin has long been associated with Italian horror movie soundtracks. After reforming in 2013, the group also performed a set at Lunar Festival earlier in the year.

For the event, the warehouse space at Boxxed will transform into a cinema with a live performance space for Goblin. After the screening there will be a special after party featuring themed cocktails, music from Sensateria DJs, plus zombie make-up artists to help get you into Halloween spirit of things.

Dawn of the Dead

Claudio Simonetti's Goblin perform 'Dawn of the Dead' live. October 29, 7pm. Boxxed, 104-108 Floodgate Street, Birmingham, B5 5SR. Tickets are available here.
