Established after the seminal filmmaker’s death in 2017, The George A. Romero Foundation “is dedicated to honoring the life work and cultural influence of Romero, and supporting a new generation of filmmakers and artists inspired by his legacy.” If Romero touched your heart in a significant way, consider making a donation to GARF this holiday season. Your contributions may even help to bring Romero’s “lost” 1973 genre flick The Amusement Park to horror fans in 2019.
Our own Tony Timpone discussed the foundation and The Amusement Park in a recent Facebook Post:
“Early screenings have blown away a select few, and the film just needs a little post-production tweaking to introduce it to the world. Suzanne has founded the George A. RomeroFoundation, “dedicated to honoring the life work and cultural influence of George A. Romero, and supporting a new generation of filmmakers and artists inspired by his legacy.” At the top of GARF’s agenda is putting the finishing touches on THE AMUSEMENT PARK and sharing this long-lost work with Romero enthusiasts worldwide.
“For the price of a Blu-ray or a Starbuck’s visit, you could be part of continuing Romero’s legacy for generations to come and sharing the vision of THE AMUSEMENT PARK that, until now, none of us even knew existed! The movie (perhaps Romero’s darkest)follows an elderly gentleman (Lincoln Maazel of MARTIN), who goes for what he assumes will be an ordinary day at the amusement park. But this being a Romero film, the man finds himself in the middle of a hellish nightmare instead.”
