George Romero is pretty much a household name....for zombie fans at least. The very first zombie movie I watched was the 1960 version of Night of the Living Dead. I was about 11 years old (1998), but the obsession with horror/gore started way before I even started walking. Night of the Living Dead was his very first zombie film--with all of the films he's made thereafter, sticking with repetitive titles that end with "...of the dead", it certainly made his name synonymous to zombies.
Anyway, so the legend does it again:
Survival of the Dead
