George A Romero Interviews
This is a fascinating collection of interviews with the creator of the zombie genre discussing his inspirations, his development as a director, and the evolution of filmmaking. When George A. Romero released his first film, "Night of the Living Dead" (1968), he created a genre - the zombie move - with which his name will always be associated, but Romero's films often transcend easy labeling, instead they are best understood as allegorical commentaries on modern life that just happen to appropriate horror as a convenient vehicle. The interviews in this collection cover a period of over forty years. In whatever format they originally appeared - the printed page, the internet, or the video interview - these discussions illustrate both the evolution of Romero's chosen forms of technology and the development of his thinking about the relationship between cinema and society. They present Romero as an independent director in every sense of the word.
