As our tradition here on the site, every Halloween night belongs to the George Romero film that launched a sub-genre and, with time, a crapload of careers. I regret the fact that I didn’t get a chance to interview Romero after he cancelled at DragonCon, because I wanted to ask him what it was like to basically invent a sub-genre. Talking with Doc, we were able to come up with only a couple of other examples: Poe with the detective story and mayhap William Gibson with cyberpunk.
So here we go. The one and the only, on the night that it owns. Hope you dig it.
Thanks again, everybody.
- As previously mentioned, the Millennium Edition is the best version on DVD I’ve seen. You can snag it from Amazon here.
