Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero has died, but he will forever be remembered as a pioneer in the horror movie genre. In 1968, Romero reinvented the “zombie” film with Night of the Living Dead and has since re-visited genre five times with, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, and Survival of the Dead. With the sad news of his passing, I decided to dig up the inaugural Sordid Cinema podcast that we recorded way back on October 27, 2009. In this episode, I invited Detroit Burns (of CKUT), and Al Kratina (of the Montreal Gazette) to discuss Romero’s influential series starting with the original trilogy. At the end of the show, I sat down with the legend to discuss his past, his future, and more.
