Since it is October, and since Dan is a huge fan of the "Dead" movies and the zombie sub-genre in general, and since there are no really good and thorough end to end biographies on this great man and great filmmaker, we've decided it was worth really digging in, doing some research, learning about and telling you guys about the great George A Romero! An independently minded, genre changing, incredibly influential, kind, generous and warm hearted person, who always got the best out of the people around him, never compromised with Hollywood executives on his creative vision, and gave us the modern zombie movie and really pushed the ideas of social commentary through horror and pushed the censors with the amounts of graphic gore he was willing and capable of achieving in his films, George A Romero was a visionary who, like many visionaries, was not fully appreciated until years after the critics initially scorned and condemned his work. Check out this episode for part two of our deep dive into his life where we cover everything after Night of the Living Dead until his passing in 2017, and make sure to tune back in next episode for a very special interview to conclude the series! Below are our sources if you want to dig deeper yourself! Enjoy!
