George A. Romero, ‘Night of the Living Dead’ creator, dies at 77

A sad day for zombie aficionados everywhere. (Of course he may return. If so, aim for the head.)

    Sad to hear. I believe I’ll have a “…of the Dead”” horror fest tonight

    My grandfather was a zombie during WW1.

    The original “Night of the Living Dead” was shot in Pittsburgh. The outdoor shots were done in farm country about five miles where I grew up. But I was studying at Duquesne University at the time in downtown Pittsburgh, and, living off campus, I would walk past the production office of Romero’s company, in a run down area of town. Small beginnings for the man.

    • Cool!

      Wow. That is awesome! I was studying at UC Anaheim School of Communications when the movie was first released. I remember working on a project analysis of the audio of the original Night of the Living Dead. They recorded some sounds of ripping flesh in a local butcher shop as a butcher literally ripped a cow apart for them. It was the audio which made the original film as effective as it was. You don’t even have to watch the film to get frightened; just close your eyes and LISTEN to the movie play through. The images are superfluous to the scare…..

    The Zombie apocalypse is real. We refer to them as Liberals & social justice warriors.

      Recent forensic research informed by autopsies performed on SJWs that there was NO BRAIN in the skull cavity of 98.92% of SJWs. Instead, coroners across North America discovered a kind of MP3 player there instead. Further analysis revealed each MP3-player contained: a full catalog of American rap and hip-hop music recorded since 1985; the complete works of Saul Alinsky with audio commentary by Hillary Clinton; a multilingual version of Karl Marx’s collected writing; a never-before-published political memoir by Josef Stalin entitled “How To Make Enemies and Enslave People for Fun and Personal Profit”; and lastly, a tiny dildo-like vibrator which researchers posit was used to essential fuck the pineal gland.

    My only claim to fame is that I met George Romero once.

    He was a good friend of one of my best friends Mark. And Mark had a small role in Night of the Living Dead; if you remember the scene in Washington where a reporter is following a scientist and a general down the street asking questions about nuclear radiation etc; the scientist was Mark. Mark had a math degree from Carnegie Mellon and he and I went to graduate school together; later we both worked for a large engineering firm in southwestern Pa. and he was my boss for a number of years.

    Alas both of them are now dead.
