The film that launched the undying zombie hordes remains a terrifying, socially conscious classic a half-century after its release.
His low-budget body of work, which included 'Night of the Living Dead' and 'Dawn of the Dead,' creeped out audiences for decades, paved the way for 'The Walking Dead.'
Romero turns 77 on Feb. 4; to celebrate, Syfy will show 'Night' for 12 consecutive hours beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET on its official Facebook page.
Man who portrayed Sheriff McClelland in the George A. Romero zombie classic was 81; he appeared in the film with an ammunition belt draped over one shoulder and memorably improvised the line, “They’re dead. They’re all messed up."
Who knew that the walking dead could also suffer from a serious case of pimples? It’s all about, ‘Do you want to leave the pimples?’ Because there’s a lot of pimples!” Romero remarks in this exclusive clip from a Q&A that followed the Nov. 5 world premiere of his fully restored zombie classic. Granted, some of those pimples, like a visible copy of the script in one scene, would have been difficult to conceal.
