George Romero’s At It Again

From the 14th to 19th centuries, Bubonic plague, aka the Black Death, repeatedly struck and utterly devastated Europe, each time causing untold devastation and the deaths of millions, only to largely disappear for decades, even centuries, before returning with a vengeance to any particular locale. I mention this only to illustrate that some pestilences upon human kind are elusive and creep up on you just when you least expect them.

Which brings us to today’s news that, yes, George Romero and Tom Savini are teaming up to do another Anti-Zombie movie:

With Fangoria producing a remake of Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things it’s only fitting that George Romero will be helming the director’s chair AND Tom Savini will be doing the special effects!

While the original dealt a little more in being a Satanic ritual that brought the dead back to life – Romero AND Savini are involved and the dead are coming back to life!

Yes, Mr. Romero has pounced upon an unwary populace once again, and this time he’s accompanied by Tom Savini, fresh from his spider hole. No doubt this movie will be full of grotesque violence and defamation directed against the Differently Animated.

Which is really a shame, because ‘Creepshow’, a perennial favorite of the Zombie Rights community, demonstrates that these two men *can* be a force for good, when the mood strikes them.

Which seems to be rarely, at best.

Still, we’ll try to keep you posted on any further developments and, when the release date draws near, picketing opportunities for this film, here on the ZRC blog.
