Small town punk rockers THE BRAIN DEADS have their first out of town show, but there are a few problems: The venue is deserted, the promoter is a creep, their bassist has gone missing, and the only kids in the audience turn out to be bloodthirsty punk rockers from Hell. NIGHT OF THE PUNKS is an award-winning 19 minute splatterpunk love letter to 1980's horror cinema, influenced by films like Return of the Living Dead, The Evil Dead and Night of the Demons. Multiple award winner and official selection of over 30 festivals worldwide, including Screamfest LA.
