NOTLD DOCUMENTARY BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD GETS A RELEASE DATE!

Birth Of The Living Dead Banner

In 1968 a young college drop-out and aspiring filmmaker named George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low-budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and invented the modern movie zombie, which has spawned legions of films, books, comics, and video games, generating billions of dollars.

Robert Kuhns’s BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD, a new documentary available on iTunes October 15 and limited theaters October 18, shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers — policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad-men, housewives and a roller-rink owner — to shoot, with a revolutionary guerrilla, run-and-gun style, his seminal film. During that process Romero and his team created an entirely new and horribly chilling monster — one that was undead and feasted upon human flesh.

For those of you (like me) living in the NYC area, the IFC Center will be premiering the new Night Of The Living Dead documentary BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD this fall (November 6th 2013)! Check out the details in the following press release:

In 1968 a young college drop-out and aspiring filmmaker named George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low-budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and invented the modern movie zombie, which has spawned legions of films, books, comics, and video games, generating billions of dollars.

Night of the Living Dead is not only internationally recognized as an art film, revered for its groundbreaking treatment of American race relations and allegorical references to the Vietnam war, the film still maintains its cult status as a classic horror masterpiece. The film made history when it simultaneously screened at MOMA and the notorious grind-house theater circuit on 42nd Street. Since its release Night of the Living Dead has been selected for preservation by the Library of Congress and the National Film Registry.

GEORGE ROMERO FINISHES NEW ZOMBIE SCRIPT!

George Romero New Script

 

In some news that, hopefully, lightens the crippling burden of the post before this one, George A. Romero (director of genre classics such as Night Of The Living Dead, Dawn Of The Dead, Day Of The Dead, Martin – really, if you don’t know who I’m talking about, quit reading this and go watch some – all – of the films I mentioned above) has completed the script for a new zombie film. That’s right, the master of zombie disaster is back (we can all forget about Diary Of The Dead and Survival Of The Dead, right? Right!). Unlike his former work within (and creating) the zombie sub-genre, however, this new screenplay is an adaptation of Steven C. Schlozman’s zombie novel, The Zombie Autopsies.

Sadly many zombie films in this day and age rely on computer generated images and in turn the film suffers, or at least in my opinion it does. What ever happened to good old fashioned latex?
