    The Franchise Files – Survival of the Dead (2009)

    In 2009, revolutionary filmmaker George A. Romero would make his final zombie film with Survival of the Dead, a Hatfield and McCoy-type story but with zombies. And in keeping with his roots, it would be a relatively small project – certainly nothing of the scope of epicness like World War Z. Romero, until...

    Creepshow (1982): An Immortal Horror Classic

    The comic book aesthetics of 1982’s Creepshow have often been imitated but rarely, if ever, replicated. There’s an unmistakable charm brought to the film which came from the highly potent combination of horror maestro George A. Romero and literary mastermind of creep Stephen King. But it goes further; they add in...

    The Franchise Files – Night of the Living Dead (1990)

    As far as remakes go, the 1990 version of Night of the Living Dead is a pretty interesting one – but only really if you’re curious about what goes on behind the scenes. The actual movie is more or less a direct replicant of the original except in color and some...

    The Franchise Files – Night of the Living Dead (1968)

    In a world where The Walking Dead continues to consume pop culture, it’s hard to imagine a time where zombies did not exist in the way we know them today. They’re everywhere. They’re sometimes cute, like in Plants versus Zombies. Other times, they’re hilarious, like in Fido. But in 1968, they existed in a form...
