THE GEORGE ROMERO MARATHON
length: 11hours 42mins
Along with Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper and John Carpenter, George Romero is one of the key faces from the silver age of horror’s Mount Rushmore. As oppose to the other genre directors who branched off into a lot of different tones and subjects, Romero seemed most pleased when working with both zombies and stories reminiscent of old EC comics. All his pieces are dark satires on human nature. So don’t let the gore throw you off from trying to see what deeper theme he’s digging at. He practically invented the modern zombie film all while completely working outside the studio system. This marathon gives you the best of the best of his work.
