Congratulations to Dread Co-Founder Steve Barton on His New Positions at The George A. Romero Foundation!
We wanted to take a moment to congratulate Dread Central co-founder Steve “Uncle Creepy” Barton on his new position at the George A. Romero Foundation!
Steve and Dread parted ways a couple of years back, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss the hell out of him. That’s why we were so thrilled to hear about his new gig at such an important institution–one very close to all of our hearts.
The Goerge A. Romero Foundation (GARF) “is 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.”
Steve is GARF’s new Guest Relations Manager! Their website explains:

He is a WGA writer, live event host, television and radio personality, tastemaker and critic, and award-winning film producer and editor-in-chief.
