George Romero: “I’m the Michael Moore of horror!”
An interesting interview with George Romero over his film career making “zombie movies” and his latest film “Survival of the Dead.”
(Sigh) George Romero’s line, “I almost don’t think of them as Zombie films.”
See, I agree. I almost don’t think of Your new films as zombie films either…. That’s not a good thing, George!!!
Why does that annoy me so much. Maybe because it’s the man who basically created the genre I love so much not taking the very subject matter seriously. If you want to make social and political statements, like Michael Moore, fine go do it. Make a documentary.
But if you want to make a good zombie movie, try harder to not make them suck.
I’m sure plenty of you out there disagree with me, but I am simply more underwhelmed with each new movie Romero makes…. And it annoys the crap out of me. They SHOULD be getting more awesome. But they’re not.
