Today The Unkindness would like to wish a very happy 73rd birthday to horror legend George A. Romero.
Romero is truly an industry jack of all trades. He has produced films such as The Crazies, directed films like Monkey Shines, wrote episodes for Tales from the Darkside, acted in horror classics like Dawn of the Dead, and sometimes performs multiple jobs, as was the case with his most notable film - Night of the Living Dead. Night of the Living Dead not only performed unexpectedly well at the box office, but also made bold political statements during a period of cultural turbulence.
Romero's vision has had immeasurable impact on the modern zombie craze to bring you literature like World War Z, films like 28 Days Later, and Tv shows like The Walking Dead. So today we would like to raise a glass to this living legend and master of horror. Kudos to you Mr.Romero, may your days be well and your nights be filled with moonlight.
