The creator of Night of the Living Dead, one of the finest movies ever to grace the silver screen.

Really? Embarrassed

He created an entire genre. The original is the best and always will be. Suspense over gore.

Definitely the high water mark in the zombie genre. I watched Night and Dawn of the Dead this evening. RIP Romero.
  

"Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist." J M Keynes

"In the first place, the dichotomy between "theoretical" and "practical" is a false one. In economics, all arguments are theoretical. And, since economics discusses the real world, these theoretical arguments are by their nature "practical" ones as well." M Rothbard

Night of the Living dead was scary. Dawn of the dead freaked me out.

Do you think the morticians are going to be creeped out?
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

The first zombie I ever saw was "Dawn of the Dead." That movie made me jump so many times. Then I went back and watched "Night of the Living Dead," which was so awesome. I am a huge "Walking Dead" fan, and I think that show owes a lot to Mr. Romero for introducing the zombie genre and making it so popular. I know Romero wasn't a Walking Dead fan. But in my view, the TV show has taken Romero's concept to a completely higher level.

Who would have thought that many years later they would form the base of trump's electorate?
