Tonight's screening of Outpost 31 at The Punk Rock Zombie Bash rates a perfect 10 on Joe Ostrica's gore-meter. It should, since the 20-minute thriller by Wooster director Dusty Austen is about a handful of survivors of a zombie outbreak that annihilates civilization. "It's not some kids with a couple blood marks on their faces. They did a really good job with the zombie makeup, the kill scenes, the holes in the head, the flesh falling apart on the bodies," says Ostrica, the bash's producer. "It's really impressive and classy for a low-budget that was all shot in Ohio."On the second Saturday of every month, Ostrica's Old School Sinema production company hosts a movie night accompanied by a concert of rock bands. Tonight, the Sinema Sirens burlesque troupe will dance between sets by punk groups First Offense, the Rub-Offs, Hollywood Blondes, and the Nick Wolff Band. And the flick will set the tone for the night. "I'm a big horror-movie fan. And on the low-budget, independent-movie level, it's much easier to reach an audience with horror movies, because the fans support the genre, whether it's made for five bucks or five million bucks," says Ostrica. "And it really stands out when it's well paced and well produced." The zombieliciousness starts at 9 tonight at Roc Bar, 1220 Old River Road on the East Bank of the Flats. Admission is $5.
