In 1999, Sony and Capcom greenlit a Resident Evil film with George A. Romero signed on as the film's director and screenplay writer. Romero's association with Capcom, the Resident Evil video game series creators, had extended from 1998 when Romero directed an ad campaign for Biohazard 2 (Resident Evil 2) in Japan. Romero stated in an official appearance in Universal Studio's Talk City chatroom that he had his secretary play the entire game through and record the gameplay so he could study it as a resource. Romero's screenplay was based on the first Resident Evil game and included characters from the video games. Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine were the lead characters, involved in a romantic relationship. Barry Burton, Rebecca Chambers, Ada Wong, and Albert Wesker were to also appear. The ending to the film would have been similar to that of the best ending to the first Resident Evil game. Romero's script was disapproved of and production was placed into development *** Capcom producer Yoshiki Okam . ...

Zombies are fictional undead creatures regularly encountered in horror and fantasy themed works. They are typically depicted as mindless, reanimated corpses with a hunger for human flesh, and particularly for human brains in some depictions. Although they share their name and some superficial similarities with the zombie from Haitian Vodun, their links to such folklore are unclear. Many consider George A. Romero's seminal film Night of the Living Dead to be the progenitor of these creatures.Zombies have a complex literary heritage, with antecedents ranging from Richard Matheson and H. P. Lovecraft to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, all drawing on European folklore of the undead. The popularity of zombies in movies has led to them sometimes having been taken out of their usual element of horror and thrown into other genres, for example the comedy film Shaun of the Dead. The "zombie apocalypse" concept, in which the civilized world is brought low by a global zombie infestation, has become a staple of modern po ...
As I just joined, I thought I'd share my first edition Creepshow comic, signed by Tom Atkins, Adrienne Barbeau, and some guy named George A. Romero.
So over this whole ZQuestion: "What does the Bible say about zombies?" Answer: A zombie is a modern-day, fictionalized plot device used in various books, films, and television shows. Zombies are imagined creatures that can be described as fully dead corpses which have been "reanimated"; that is, they act as though they are alive while continuing the natural process of decay. George A. Romero's seminal 1968 film Night of the Living Dead uses zombies to frame a satirical picture of American society, culture, and politics. Romero's zombies are mindless, flesh-eating monsters that stumble about, intent on fulfilling a craving for human brains. Zombies have been a staple of the horror genre since 1968, and a zombie craze is prevalent in American culture today. However, the walking dead is not merely a 20th-century idea. Practitioners of Voodoo in Haiti and Africa have long believed that sorcerers are responsible for reanimating and controlling corpses. Additionally, mythologies and legends abound with referenc ...
The Crazies is a 2010 US horror film directed by Breck Eisner. Written by Scott Kosar and Ray Wright, the film is a remake of the 1973 film of the same name by George A. Romero, who is also the executive producer and co-writer of the remake. The Crazies stars Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell. The film takes place in the fictional town of Ogden Marsh, Pierce County, Iowa, "friendliest place on Earth," whose town water supply is accidentally infected with the "Trixie" virus. After an incubation period of 48 hours, this virus gradually transforms the mental state of the infected into that of cold, calculating, depraved, bloodthirsty killers, who then prey on family and neighbors alike. The film was released on February 26, 2010 to positive reviews from critics, and was a box office success both domestically and internationally.
Gamer Game Movies fact of the day: Before Paul Anderson, now known for the Director of the Resident Evil Movies, replaced George A. Romero who was going to write/direct the R.E Movie Franchise by studying the games and writing a script solely off the Games. Do you guys think he would have made the series good in your opinion?
So apparently The Walking Dead was originally going to be called "Night of the Living Dead" as that name has somehow ended up public domain (that explains the infinite amount of terrible movies with that name lol). I have a feeling people would have looked at it a lot different if they had gone with that. I do think it would have been neat to see George A. Romero's legacy reinvigorated like that though!
I wonder what would have happened to the Resident Evil film series if Capcom kept George A. Romero write/direct instead of Paul Anderson
Stephen King and George A. Romero's Creepshow was released on this day in 1982.
Resident Evil (film series): Resident Evil is a science fiction film series based upon the Capcom video games of the same name. Constantin Film bought rights to the first film in January 1997 with Alan B. McElroy and George A. Romero as potential writers. In 2001 Sony acquired distribution rights to the film and hired Paul W. S. Anderson as writer and director for Resident Evil (2002). He continued on as writer and producer for Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) and Resident Evil: Extinction (2007), and returned as director for a fourth installment, Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) and the fifth film Resident Evil: Retribution (2012), in 3D. A sixth installment is planned for a 2014 release date. The Umbrella Corporation acts as the main antagonist in the series, a bioengineering pharmaceutical company responsible for the zombie apocalypse as a result of creating the T-virus. The films follow franchise protagonist Alice, a completely original character created for the films portrayed by Milla Jovovich, who w ...

 NIGHTMARES IN RED, WHITE AND BLUE - Moderately interesting talking head documentary explores the history and social context of American horror films. Thanks to the participation of John Carpenter, George A. Romero and Joe Dante, it holds your interest...even as very little of what is said could be considered genuinely insightful - particularly not to a die hard fan of the genre who has probably already read up on all this stuff. It gets a little bogged down in trying to find a socio-political connection to absolutely everything that's discussed and also falters in trying to cover too much ground (this might have worked better as a series). If you're hoping to hear from David Cronenberg or Wes Craven, look elsewhere. Also look elsewhere if you're hoping on getting much info about horror films made after 1987. I agree that the 90s were not a particular watershed for the genre; but to gloss over the last 20 years like that still comes off as slightly lazy.
George A. Romero was great. Next year how about Robert Englund ??? That would be amazing...

My review of World War Z that originally appeared in The Lock Haven Express "The Scene" Thursday July 4th 2013 'Zombies go viral! World on brink! Run, save yourselves... The scariest movie of the year is here!' I have to admit, zombie movies have always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Ever since George A. Romero brought "Night of the Living Dead," (1968) kicking and screaming into cinemas and into the 'american psyche,' zombies have become a part of movie culture and have been told and retold in so many forms that they have a genre all of their own. Gangster movies, westerns, horror movies, sci-fi movies, musicals and romantic comedies all have their own established genres - and now zombie movies do too. Playing into all our deepest, darkest fears, we love to hate them, and, for many, we hate to love them - but love them we do! For me, it was Romero's "Dawn of the Dead," (1978) that really started it off, the absolute shock and fear that hit me about that movie is one that I will nev ...

Zombi 2 Worst Title in a Horror Flick goes to Zombi 2! Now, now hear me out. They are missing an e at the end of zombie! What a huge spelling error! Zombi 2 is one heck of a film! The film is one of the many b*s*a*d child of George A. Romero's excellent Dawn of the Dead. I do not know if the film was huge in Europe, but I am sure Dawn of the Dead impacted Europe because not too long afterwards, children began popping up everywhere. Zombi 2 is an excellent example of that. The film was made by an Italian company with director Lucio Fulci taking the film on. We begin the film in the New Yorkharbor where a boat ominously enters. Law enforcement is contacted to deal with the situation. While boarding it, one of them has his neck bitten out by a zombie. The zombie is shot and falls into the water. The boat belongs to Anne Bowles’ (Tisa Farrow) father. Reporter Peter West (Ian McCulloh) is assigned to the incident. The two meet on the boat and become a team after an almost close call. ...
'WORLD WAR Z': Five Stars (Out of Five) 'WORLD WAR Z' is probably the best zombie film since George A. Romero's 1978 classic 'DAWN OF THE DEAD', despite it's PG-13 rating (the film should have been rated R but the studio bought a commercial friendly rating for it). Romero was a big influence on the writer of the book it's based on, of the same name, Max Brooks. The book 'World War Z' is a 2006 sequel to Brooks' popular 2003 hit 'The Zombie Survival Guide'. It's a collection of different characters' accounts of a ten year zombie war and what follows. The movie deviates quite a bit from the book and centers on a retired U.N. agent (played by Brad Pitt) that travels around the world looking for a way to stop a zombie apocalypse. It was written by Matthew Michael Carnahan (who also wrote the political thrillers 'STATE OF PLAY', 'LIONS FOR LAMBS' and 'KINGDOM') and J. Michael Straczynski (who's well known for creating the popular sci-fi TV series 'BABYLON 5' and the comic book 'Rising Stars') ...
Why do so many people think that George A. Romero's NIGHT OF THE Living Dead (1968) is the first zombie film? Has no one heard of WHITE ZOMBIE (1932)?
Dad and I both enjoyed 'World War Z'. I'm a film purist and I never quite bought into zombies moving at warp speed or at least what is warp speed compared to the sloth like movement seen in a real zombie film by George A. Romero. But this one is extremely well paced and moves through 4 big memorable scenes spread out evenly over 116 minutes that I thought gave it the momentum it needed to succeed. No slow spots and I hated getting up to go to the can twice during the picture so I enjoyed it and it has parallels to 'I Am Legend' from 2007 but this has a more satisfying conclusion. *** out of *
Dead Being Billed for Life Insurance by Alan Farnham Source: abcnews.go.com Life insurance for the dead? In a plot that might have been conceived by Fred MacMurray and George A. Romero, the nation's leading insurance companies continued billing customers for life insurance long after they were dead. The companies--including such household names as AIG, Hartford, John Hancock, Met Life, Prudential, Transamerica and TIAA-CREF-- have agreed to a multi-state settlement under which they will repay some $763 million owed the heirs of the deceased. Prime mover in the settlement has been Controller John Chiang of the State of California, whose citizens stand to get back as much as $87 million from 11 insurers. California law requires a life insurer to pay death benefits to heirs within three years after the demise of the policyholder. To keep tabs on which holders are alive and which are dead, insurers keep a so-called Death Master file, based on Social Security data. When a death is recorded in the file, insurer ...
Expect more along the lines of George A. Romero. It's more political than I am Legend/Omega Man.
EXPECTED ARRIVALS FOR THURSDAY, JUNE 13 LAST OF US - possibly the most anticipated PS3 game of all time NIGHT OF THE Living Dead RESURRECTION - The deceased have risen with the instinct to feed on the living as a family is trapped during a zombie apocalypse. Based on George A. Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead. DIRECT TO DISC JACK THE GIANT SLAYER - It's enthusiastically acted and reasonably fun, but Jack the Giant Slayer is also overwhelmed by digital effects and a bland, impersonal story. NICHOLAS HOULT, 52/100, US BOX OFFICE $65.2M STOKER - Its script doesn't quite carry the dramatic heft of his earlier work, but Park Chan-wook's Stoker showcases his eye for sumptuous imagery and his affection for dark, atmospheric narratives populated by mysterious characters. NICOLE KIDMAN, 67/100, US BOX OFFICE $1.7M QUARTET - It's sweet, gentle, and predictable to a fault, but Dustin Hoffman's affectionate direction and the talented cast's amiable charm make Quartet too difficult to resist.

The Walking Dead is an American horror/drama television series developed by Frank Darabont. It is based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The series stars Andrew Lincoln as sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma to find the world dominated by flesh-eating "walkers", resembling the zombies of George A. Romero's horror movies. He sets out to find his family and encounters many other survivors along the way. The Walking Dead premiered on October 31, 2010, on the cable television channel AMC in the United States. It premiered internationally during the first week of November 2010 on Fox International Channels. Based on its reception, AMC renewed the series for a second season of 13 episodes, which premiered on October 16, 2011. Two episodes into the second season, AMC announced that the show would return for a third season, which began airing on October 14, 2012. On December 21, 2012, AMC renewed The Walking Dead for a fourth season. .. ...
The ABC's Of Death is a very very interesting concept for a horror film. 26 directors were recruited from around the world to pick a letter of the alphabet and then film a short horror film in relation to that letter. This is a very unique concept and many of the film's are really good and the ones that are bad are terrible. The Japanese have a few movies in here and they are very stupid and absolutely awful. I am not a fan of Japanese horror films because they make crazy films for the sake of being crazy and it never makes any sense. There are some really good entries scattered throughout the various chapters, you just have to wait for them to come around and appreciate them. I would love to see the concept of the film done with real masters of horror films like Eli Roth, Adam Green, George A. Romero, Clive Barker, John Carpenter and Rob Zombie just to name a few. This film is definitely worth the view if you are looking for something original in concept. I give the film four bottles out of my six pack.
