Living with the Dead: The Films of George A. Romero

Series Site

In 1968, George A. Romero (1940—2017) ushered in a new era in both independent and horror filmmaking with his era-defining debut Night of the Living Dead, a low-budget shock to the system that fused genre and sociopolitical critique to radical effect. Over the course of four influential decades, Romero would remain fiercely committed to his blazingly personal vision, imbuing his all-American nightmares with satiric and deadly serious commentaries on issues like race, capitalism, militarism, and government mistrust. In Romero’s films, the monsters are not the other—they are mirrors to examine our own society and humanity.
