Horror Film Director George Romero

He made his first film, Night of the Living Dead, on a shoestring budget on the weekends. The film, about a cadre of flesh-eating zombies, became a cult classic and a copy is now in the archives of the New York Museum of Modern Art. Romero's subsequent successes included Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Creepshow and Monkey Shines. Four of his movies have been reissued on video. There's a new remake of Dawn of the Dead (This interview was originally broadcast on July 18, 1988).
