Night of the Living Dead™ – Remix was a 2020 production by the UK theatre production company imitating the dog. With a successful UK tour cut short by theatre closures in the wake of COVID-19, the production opened at Leeds Playhouse on 28th January 2020 and toured UK venues until 14th March 2020.
Before the tour's end, I reviewed Night of the Living Dead™ – Remix, staged at the Nottingham Playhouse, for Horror Homeroom, a US-based website focusing on horror in all its forms (fiction, film, TV).
Imitating the dog are known for their breadth – from stagings of comic serials to musical theatre, and from adaptions of classical novels, including Heart of Darkness (2018), to Cold War spy dramas. Turning to one of the more iconic horror entries in American cinema, their production of George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968) was a striking new entry to their company catalogue.
I'm Christina Brennan, a writer and reviewer whose work has appeared in various places, including Little White Lies, Horror Homeroom, Horrified and Ghoulish Media. My first book will be on George Sluizer's film Spoorloos (translated from Dutch as The Vanishing) – a film that Stanley Kubrick called the most terrifying he'd ever seen. The book will be coming out with Devil's Advocate series, the imprint of Liverpool University Press devoted to exploring cult and classic horror cinema. I've been a reviewer for the Salem Horror Film Festival, and I write reviews for academic journals, including Revenant and the Irish Gothic and Horror Journal. In the recent past, I did a PhD on North American post-apocalyptic and doomsday fiction.
