These are uncertain times we are living in, and tonight, any number of zombie subspecies could be roaming around outside your window. You’ve got your standard voodoo-variety walking dead; your comet-borne-disease walking dead; and then, of course, your hell’s-just-too-full walking dead. And though they are slow and not too smart, zombies are determined to get what they want, whether that’s eating your brain, shredding your skin, or just merrily strewing your innards around. And around here, once one taps at your English-basement window, you’re pretty much screwed. I mean, it’s not as if we live in Pittsburgh, like those lucky Dawn of the Dead people trapped in a mall that conveniently had an artillery store in it. Guns don’t kill people; zombies kill people! Prepare yourself for things to come when the Washington Psychotronic Film Society presents “We Are Going to Eat You!,” a collection of vintage zombie-movie trailers, at 8 p.m. at Dr. Dremo’s Taphouse, 2001 Clarendon Blvd., Arlington. $2 (suggested donation).
