NILBOG: The World's Only Horror Movie Music Tribute LIVE! + Lucio Fulci's "The Gates Of Hell"

NILBOG LIVE! – 10:15pm
Nilbog is a horror film score tribute band like no other — because it might be the only one! Featuring some of L.A.’s most dedicated film music lovers (as well as former/current members of Captain Ahab, White Fence, Clipping, Anavan, Monsturo and Rose For Bohdan), Nilbog exists to pay homage to classic soundtrack moments by Goblin, John Carpenter, Giorgio Moroder, Ennio Morricone and other masters of the form. Utilizing vintage synths and a keen ear for detail, this five-piece band recreates down to the last timbre some of the most beloved and fetishized horror movie themes of the past few decades — and has piles of fun doing it. Tonight, hear them perform tunes from Deep Red, Escape From New York, Phenomena, Dawn of the Dead, Return of the Living Dead, Phantasm and others!

Lucio Fulci’s THE GATES OF HELL – approx. 11:30pm
Maggot storms, vomiting guts, drillbits to the skull, oh my! Following the wild success of Zombie, outrageous Italian horror director Lucio Fulci next splattered blood on American drive-in screens with this 1980 gothic feast of zombies and the supernatural — originally titled City Of The Living Dead, but known to most of its first VHS-reared fans under the catchier title of The Gates of Hell. Thanks to Sergio Salvati’s magnificent cinematography, Gino de Rossi’s skincrawling special effects, and especially Fabio Frizzi’s haunting score, this particular entry in the Fulci canon works up a feverish series of gore-drenched incidents which provide a heavy visceral kick.
Dir. Lucio Fulci, 1980, 35mm, 93 min.
