If you’re having a hard time making Halloween plans, Edgar Wright has done the hard work for you: he’s going to be hosting an evening at the New Beverly Cinema featuring Shaun of the Dead and Riki Oh: The Story of Riki, as well as the uncut version of his Grindhouse trailer, Don’t. Here’s what Edgar has to say about it all:
If you are at a loose end early on Halloween night, why not join me at the New Beverly Cinema for a double bill of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and my choice of Halloween film – RIKI OH: THE STORY OF RIKI.
The New Beverly have not only kindly chosen my film as the main feature, but let me pick the second half of the double bill. And what a second half…
I will also be showing the uncut version of my GRINDHOUSE trailer “DON’T” for the first time in the US.
As well as a whole mess of handpicked vintage trailers. Should be a hoot.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD & DON’T are at 7.30
and the amazing
RIKI OH : THE STORY OF RICKY is at 9.30
What could be more amazing than a film that names it protagonist twice in the title?
And what could be more Halloween-y than a ridiculously gory futuristic prison romp with a hero who can play the flute and punch through peoples heads?
I swear that if you haven’t seen it before – it’s a crazy film and a great one to see with a crowd.
If you need further prompting; please peruse the IMDB plot keywords for RIKI OH.

See you Friday!
