Sequels and Remakes: The Good, The Bad, and The Regrettable

night_of_the_living_dead1968-movie-2

Night of the Living Dead is a staple in the history of horror, be it with its bold casting choices, casting Daune Jones (a black man) as the lead character, something unheard of in 1968, or helping to spawn the cannibalistic zombie genre (even though they don’t once use the word zombie in this film), and eventually putting the names George Romero and John Russo on the map.

It was October 1991 and I went to a film location that was the place where a … Continue reading
