Speaking of ‘Escaping from Zombies’, George Romero is the one that taught 90% of us just how to do that!! I mean HELLO, who doesn’t have ‘Night of the Living Dead’ on their top 10?!??
And luckily for us he went on with the zombie story with:
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Day of the Dead (1985)
Land of the Dead (2005)
Diary of the Dead (2007)
Survival of the Dead (2009)
He even directed the commercial for the video game Resident Evil 2!
He even showed up in a favorite video game of mine, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Zombie map Call of the Dead. I actually jumped up, dropping my controller and my jaw as an odd sound escaped me.
The Walking Dead big shot Greg Nicotero got his zombie bite working on special effect zombie make up in Romero’s film Day of the Dead, then again in Dawn of the Dead! Nicotero is such a fan of Romero’s too that he keep giving us Easter Egg tribute to the Godfather of the Dead 😉
George has filmed many other horror movies. He has even worked with Stephen King for Creep Show and The Dark Half. And is loved by many.
So it’s really shocking to find out that George Romero is just now getting a star?!?!?
