It's the Booze Talkin', We want to see Romero return to political horror!

One of my earliest memories of falling in love with horror was a certain iconic zombie flick. It was a day such as this, a gloomy sort of Los Angeles morning, and the shades were all shut on the windows to keep the place especially dark. On a crappy TV was the classic zombie thriller NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Some of you may remember the old creature features that would run on...

R.I.P.: Night of the Living Dead sheriff George Kosana has passed away

I have mentioned several times that George A. Romero's 1968 classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is one of my all-time favorite films and likely the movie I have watched more than any other. It's cinematic comfort to me, something I can put on and watch at any time. However, there can be a sad edge to these viewings at times. The further we get away from its initial release, the more...

Lakeshore Records to release a new score for Night of the Living Dead

When George A. Romero was putting together his 1968 classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the score he laid over the film was assembled from pre-existing library tracks. Although it wasn't composed specifically for the movie, that music did give NIGHT an iconic sound, and the film took ownership of the music in a way. Tracks featured in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD show up in other movies,...

Judith O'Dea returns in Night of the Living Dead: Genesis trailer

As most horror fans know, George A. Romero's 1968 classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is, due to the simple oversight of not including a copyright notice on the film, in the public domain. Anyone can do whatever they want with it, including remake and/or sequelize it, and many independent filmmakers have taken advantage of that. Usually I am very against anyone daring to touch NIGHT,...
