GEORGE A. ROMERO

REMEMBERED

(1940 – 2017)

Romero’s influence on the pop culture world is nearly incalculable. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, DAWN OF THE DEAD, and DAY OF THE DEAD are unique and unchallenged studies of a world overtaken by shuffling, flesh-eating zombies in three separate generations. His films always reveal grave truths about humanity and are stunningly crafted and intelligent alongside inventive special effects. Every story about a zombie apocalypse owes something to him, from 28 DAYS LATER to THE WALKING DEAD to the recent Korean phenomenon TRAIN TO BUSAN. His lesser known work like MARTIN and KNIGHT RIDERS overturned notions of what a genre film could be, while Romero’s low-budget methods have inspired countless young film lovers to head into the wilderness with nothing but a camera and a bit of fake blood.

 

Every good apocalypse begins with armored vehicle rescue and soldiers shouting at citizens to “stay calm”, and if you’re the type who prefers a heavy dose of realistic terror in your zombie experience, then look no further. Famous Monsters’ Hall of the Dead, inspired by zombie apocalypse creator George A. Romero, will feature authentic military might courtesy of the U.S. Army! The undead will paw at you while you’re told to “clear the area!”, and you might even be wrenched aside to avoid being run over by a tank. It doesn’t get any more intense than this!
