Dark Chicago has received a set of tickets to give away to a special advance screening of IT COMES AT NIGHT at 7:00 pm on June 1st. To claim yours, simply visit! These screenings are first-come, first-served and tend to fill up to capacity, so plan to arrive early!

Imagine the end of the world— Now imagine something worse.

Award-winning filmmaker Trey Edward Shults follows his incredible debut feature KRISHA with IT COMES AT NIGHT, a horror film following a man (Joel Edgerton) as he learns that the evil stalking his family home may be only a prelude to horrors that come from within.

Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young family seeking refuge.

Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever-closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.

IT COMES AT NIGHT opens nationwide on June 9th.

Chicago Zombie March 2017: June 24th!

Chicago Zombie MarchIt’s that time again, zombies! The annual Chicago Zombie March is set for June 24th. The rules are very simple: Dress and be made up as a zombie and just shamble and act like one.

We will all meet at Millennium Park by the bean at 3:30 pm and proceed from there.

The last few years we have walked to the Tribune Center, then to Daley Plaza, back to Millennium Park and if we still have able-bodied zombies left, we will head over to the ABC7 news station for the 5:00 pm show.

Please as a rule of courtesy please don’t bother non-participants. The city of Chicago is kind enough to put up with our shenanigans – let’s not make them regret it!

Also please be mindful of the city and don’t smear/spill fake blood (or other gross stuff) on the sidewalks and store/restaurant windows (we can get sued and possibly banned from doing this again!)

If folks want their makeup done, look up Colleen Jones and David Lasley on Facebook.

If you don’t have the time to make an appointment, don’t worry! We will have a crew of zombie makeup artists to zombify you up (for a fee)! We are looking for a makeup spot.

More details will come as the march gets closer and closer.

We are in the middle of working on a makeup crew for the march. If you or someone you know is interested in doing makeup, message Colleen Jones or David Lasley for more info (make sure you include a link to some pics!)

So start those undead gears a rolling folks!

Keep up to date with the Chicago Zombie March on Facebook and Twitter.

RSVP at the official Facebook Event Page, and keep an eye on it for updates!
