Night of the Living Dead
George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead is, of course, one of the most seminal horror films ever, having inspired countless filmmakers, artists and musicians over the years. Now some of those folks are looking to give back to the greatest zombie film ever made.
Continuing their love affair with all things horror (we totally approve, by the way) the cats over at the "Cinema Cool Show" recently sat down with the maestro himself, George A. Romero, to talk his special brand of zombie flicks starting from Night of the Living Dead all the way up to his latest release, Survival of the Dead.
