From the people behind the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon (18 years and running), Zompire: The Undead Film Festival is an annual event featuring independent short and feature films of the Undead! Get your Halloween season started right with the coolest, most intelligent, occasionally gruesome, and totally fun movies and events.


Independent filmmakers are the ones who take real risks, making movies with truly fresh ideas. Please join us and come enjoy these films you can’t see at your local multiplex!

We are proud to announce that the feature-length Japanese heavy metal zombie movie, DEAD BANGING, directed by Eiji Uchida will be making its US Premiere at Zompire. Dead Banging has everything you need: an all-girl Heavy Metal band (played by real-life all-girl rock band, Gacharic Spin), a gun-toting monk, martial artist school girl military enforcers(!), and, of course, head-banging Zombies. Don’t miss this chance to be among the first in the US to appreciate the full glory of this zany, bloody, and rockin’ movie.

Also featured is DEAD MEAT WALKING: A Zombie Walk Documentary, showcasing the Zombie Walk phenomenon with interviews of Norman Reedus (Walking Dead), Judith O’Dea (Night of The Living Dead), Tom Savini (special makeup effects for Friday the 13th and Romero’s Dead movies), John Russo (screenwriter, Night of The Living Dead), and many more.

SOUND OF NOTHING is a new independent feature that takes place 6 years after the Zombie Apocalypse, and is a smart and thoughtful examination of life after the fall, with tons of action and thrills. Our final feature-length film, THEY WILL OUTLIVE US ALL asks the question, “what will survive?” after a string of monster hurricanes, starting with Hurricane Sandy, hit New York City. Both gruesome and hilarious, this film is a must-see!

Films scheduled to play include:

  • A Cup of Sugar (USA 11 mins.)
  • Bad Moon Rising (Australia 8 mins.)
  • Dead Banging (Japan 86 mins.)
  • Dead Meat Walking – A Zombie Walk Documentary (USA 70 mins.)
  • Environmental Pressures and Species Adaptation () (South Korea 11 mins.)
  • Girl At The Door (USA 12 mins.)
  • Luna (USA 12 mins.)
  • Miasma (USA 7 mins.)
  • Mr. Nakamura’s Addiction (USA 10 mins.)
  • Sanguijuelas (Mexico 27 mins.)
  • Sound of Nothing (USA 89 mins.)
  • Sulfuric (USA 9 mins.)
  • The Tale of the Curious and Confused Monster (Australia 3 mins.)
  • They Will Outlive Us All (USA 73 mins.)
  • Thicker Than Water (USA 16 mins.)
  • Tokyo Halloween Night (Japan 24 mins.)
  • Zombie! (Canada 12 mins.)
  • Zombiewood (USA 15 mins.)

In addition to screening only independent films this year, attendees will get a glimpse into what it takes to be truly Z-day prepared when A. Scott Glancy, Pagan Publishing, gives Friday night’s keynote speech. On Saturday night, Dark Horse Editor in Chief, Scott Allie will reveal what’s in store for the future of horror comics!

We are also pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Costume Contest, sponsored in part by Portland’s newest horror publication, Living Dead Magazine. First place winner will take home a $100 cash prize, plus a prize package provided by Guardian Games, Sigh Co. Graphics, and FrightTown. Guest judges The Living Dead Girls and representatives from the Portland Zombie Walk will determine which costumed fiend will take home the grand prize!

Last year, we resurrected Zompire after a two year hiatus, with a one-night event that showcased some of the best indy Undead films we could find, plus we showed The Lost Boys (along with a hilarious drinking game!) and hosted an Undead Costume Contest, with tons of great prizes! It was a blast, but this year is going to be amazing, with two full nights of short and feature films to chill your blood and tickle your funny bone.

    I want to go because that is my husband and I’s 12th anniversary, and we uswd to ALWAYS go see a horror movie to celebrate (the perks of it being near Halloween), vit haven’t been to a theater since we had a baby… 4 years ago. This would be the perfect opportunity to resurrect our old tradition of celebrating our love by being scared witless.

I’m convinced he’s on his way to being an amazing zombie film maker. Please, pick me! Free tickets would be amazing!!

    I would love to be able to take my daughter, her birthday is right around the corner and being new in town with limited finances would be a great birthday gift for her. She has always liked movies and shows of this sort and has sat next to me on the couch since season 1 of the Walking Dead. Funny thing is, she liked Norman Reedus the best because if his crossbow!

  29. brian September 27, 2013 at 5:07 pm #

    I need an excuse to take a new lady friend out. She loves to get scared and I’m definitely going to impress her by winning the costume contest. Help a brother out!

  30. Carl September 27, 2013 at 5:39 pm #


  31. Kathy Misso September 27, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    This is exactly what I have been hoping for, October – Zombies! Feature length films, short clips, documentaries. Yes, please!

  32. sunchicka September 28, 2013 at 12:15 am #

    Need to amp up the zombie feeling for Halloween! And this film fest should do the trick.

  33. Brooke September 28, 2013 at 12:52 am #

    I would love to win these tickets! I am from Michigan and recently moved out to Oregon spontaneously to find bigger and better things! Crazy right? I love film festivals as i would go to many in Ann Arbor (MI) but none were based on my favorite thing! ZOMBIES!!!! Halloween in general. Most people would find it a strange obsession, but what a better way to meet people that love the same things as me (and hopefully life long friends at that!). To top it off im a free lance makeup artist specializing in zombie special effects makeup! I know i could win that costume contest! If not thats okay too i just love to play w latex and fake blood! :D

  34. caitlin September 28, 2013 at 7:38 am #

    How cool! My costume will be perfect for this.

  35. mike scheehean September 28, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    I recently dove into a relationship. The girl has helped me out of a hige downward spiral. Done everything for me and given the world. We bonded over horror movies whether campy or realistic, i would love to show her how much it all meant by taking her to an even like this one that supports independent filming and the power and following of horror movie lovers.

  36. Alisa Joseph September 28, 2013 at 10:01 pm #

    I would SO love to win this! My husband & I just moved here recently, are looking to explore all the amazingness PDX has to offer, share a crazy infatuation for Haloween & horror flicks, & would absolutely dress for the occasion!! He moved here on trust alone, never having visited before. Please help me prove to him why Portlands where it’s at! ♡♥

  37. Robert October 1, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

  39. Mandy Klehr October 2, 2013 at 1:03 pm #

    I have loved horror movies and zombies for a very long time. So much, every October I have a month-long movie fest, which this year I named “Horror-tober Fest.” I have categories for each day, and I made Monday, Zombday. Even though this event is not on Monday, I would love to be able to see these and write about each one on my Horro-tober ( blog!

  40. Kyle October 3, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    Sounds like a killer time! The woman and I are just dying to go!
