Night of the Living Dead

December 14th, 2018

George Romero and a small group of aspiring filmmakers spent their summer making a horror movie about flesh-eating ghouls and the ordinary people trying to fend them off.  That movie became “Night of the Living Dead” and it created a new kind of horror genre and a new kind of movie monster… THE ZOMBIE.

 

Listen in as the Boys and Ghouls duo discuss how this landmark movie came to be.  You’ll GASP as we discuss what a low budget movie this was.  You’ll THRILL as we examine the casting of an African American in the lead of a horror movie in racially tumultuous 1967.  And SHUDDER as we let you know just what it was the zombies were really eating.

 

Enjoy!
