Forza Italo presents the world premiere of Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin performing the live score to their soundtrack of George A Romero’s famed zombie film Dawn of the Dead (aka Zombi). Goblin composed the soundtrack for this horrifying movie in 1978, having already made their mark with their musical collaborations with Dario Argento on both Suspiria (1975) and Profondo Rosso (1978). This audio-visual premiere promises to be a thrilling and intense ride through one of the most important and apocalyptic horror films ever put to celluloid.

Following the performance, Forza Italo DJs Sebastian Simonetti & Stefano Crosserini will throw down the hottest dischi d’oro from the golden age of italo-disco, giallo soundtracks and synth music of the late 70s and early 80s. Forza Italo auxiliary member Stefano Galvino of Film Ireland will debut a unique new zombie-horror audio-visual piece to give us our second premiere of the night. Bravo!

Simon Conway

‘One of the best horror films ever made -- and, as an inescapable result, one of the most horrifying. It is gruesome, sickening, disgusting, violent, brutal and appalling. It is also brilliantly crafted, funny, droll, and savagely merciless in its satiric view of the American consumer society.’
Roger Ebert
