Way back in 2010 I reviewed Breck Eisner’s remake of The Crazies and went crazy for it giving it 5 out of 5. Let me let you into a secret though, I had never seen the original 1973 movie. That is until now.
Three films from the late, legendary horror director, George A. Romero, showing that although he might have defined zombie cinema, it didn’t define him.
Before George A. Romero sucked the life out of his famous Dead series, he directed and wrote the screenplays for ‘Monkey Shines’ and ‘The Dark Half’.
Everyone knows that George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is a great zombie movie but few probably realise how important it is not only to horror but in regards to cinema as a whole and what a massive impact it had on its audience as a reflection of the turbulent times on its initial release in 1968.
