For the seven people seeking shelter from the zombies in an isolated farmhouse that hellish night in the late 1960s, it seemed like dawn would never come and the nightmare would never end. But the sun did come up at the end of George A. Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead, killing the night and bringing a sole survivor into another dawn before a gut-wrenching gunshot echoed across the Pennsylvania hills. That's where the story ends in the film, but tales from Romero's zombie-plagued world will continue to be told on the paneled page in three upcoming Ultimate Night of the Living Dead comic book series from Double Take, including one that follows siblings Barbara and Johnny.

It influenced Stephen King's seminal horror novel, The Shining, and was the basis for a 1976 film starring Karen Black and Oliver Reed. Valancourt Books is now paying tribute to one of the most notable haunted house stories ever put to paper with their new edition of Robert Marasco's Burnt Offerings, featuring an introduction by Stephen Graham Jones. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, we have an excerpt from the 1973 horror novel in our latest round-up, along with details on how you can be a volunteer at this year's Stanley Film Festival and a look at images from the Great Lakes-set horror film, The Dark Below, which recently wrapped principal photography.

Are zombies really that memorable? When you think about it, today’s undead munchers are not exactly an interesting crowd since all they do between meals is wander around in a trance. The pre Romero vegetarians are even worse, as they spend most of their time under the thumb of a zombie master, although on the odd occasion they do rebel against their tyrannical leader.
Zombie movies are a dime a dozen these days, and apart from a few moderately successful variations, they haven’t progressed beyond the flesh-eating antics of Night of the Living Dead (1968). But on the odd occasion a couple of zombies stand out from the faceless crowd of walking corpses, and what some these ghouls lack in personality, they make up for in other ways.
So here’s a list of ten memorable zombies that stood out for me, as an avid horror movie fan.
"The Drac pack is back" in the new teaser trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2, in which Frank (Frankenstein's monster, voiced by Kevin James) faces his old nemesis: fire. We also have a look at a new trailer for The CW's iZombie and two clips from the pilot, one of which includes George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead playing on a TV in the background. A teaser for Ava's Possessions, a horror film making its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival tomorrow night, is also featured in our latest trailer round-up.
Hotel Transylvania 2: "The Drac pack is back for an all-new monster comedy adventure in Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 2! Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania... Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, »

With all the angst-ridden teen vampires invited into our homes, zombies were perhaps deserving of equal time among the panoply of misunderstood monsters. Yet CW’s adaptation of the Vertigo comic “iZombie” pretty quickly starts to stumble from promising toward stale, basically turning its undead heroine into a youthful crime-solver — “Veronica Mars” with an inordinately pale complexion. Although the producer of that earlier series, Rob Thomas, is also at the tiller here, the more direct comparison might be “Tru Calling.” If so, then despite CW’s thus far blessed season, and a baked-in appetite among fans, “iZombie” would be just another dead show walking.
Lest anyone (Ok, almost everyone) forget, “Tru Calling” was the short-lived Fox vehicle for Eliza Dushku, who played a young woman working in a morgue, using her odd gift — reliving the previous day — to save people. Here, in “You are who you eat” fashion, Liv (Rose McIver), like any good zombie, »

A biblically-foretold falling star (the Wyrmwood of the title) leads to an zombie apocalypse on Earth, turning all but those with A negative blood into the walking dead. When Aussie mechanic Barry’s wife and child fall victim to the zombie “virus” he seeks out the only other member of his family, his sister Brooke – who, after surviving a zombie attack, is abducted by a sinister team of gas-masked soldiers and experimented on by a mad military scientist. Teaming up with a handful of other survivors, Barry heads across the outback in a truck powered only by zombie blood, to track down his sister and kick plenty of zombie ass along the way! »

Welcome to another horror round-up! This time around, we have details on how you can support Tom Savini's Nightmare City remake that's presented by Umberto Lenzi, the director of the 1980 original, a look at a new poster and information for the Halloween-related documentary, Horror Icon: Inside Michael's Mask with Tony Moran, and the reveal of who will play the lead role in Fox's Frankenstein pilot.
Tom Savini's Nightmare City Remake: Tom Savini, the Godfather of Gore, is fittingly set to direct and supervise the special effects on the Monsta Worx remake of Umberto Lenzi's zombie movie, Nightmare City. Lenzi himself is associate producing and presenting the project, with shooting slated to begin late this year in Pittsburgh and Los Angeles.

The concept of returning from beyond the grave is one of the touchstones of the horror genre. From Mary Shelley's immortal (and constantly adapted) novel "Frankenstein" to George A. Romero's equally inspiring midnight movie "Night of the Living Dead," the idea of crossing over and then coming back has been the backbone of countless scary stories. The latest tale to tackle this idea is "The Lazarus Effect," a new cheapo horror film from "Paranormal Activity" producer Jason Blum, that follows a plucky group of graduate students who are experimenting with a new serum that is designed to bring patients who have died on the operating table back to life (in an attempt to give doctors more time to fix the problem). Of course, things go terribly, terribly wrong. What could have been a nicely technological take on the same basic material, is drably put together, light on scares, »

Christian Petzold took a bold step into history with 2012's Barbara, exiling Nina Hoss's heroine into the diaphanous threats and suspicions of a provincial, 1980s East Germany. With Phoenix, his follow-up, Petzold takes this movement into history even further, striking starkly, deeply at questions of identity in a post-war Germany quivering silently with destitution, rage, and willful blindness. In a spectral sequence opening the film directly evoking the eerie clinical imagery of Georges Franju's lyrical horror film Eyes without a Face, Nelly, a concentration camp survivor, returns in quiet to Berlin after having reconstructive surgery following wartime mutilations. The woman who emerges from under the knife cannot be recognized. She emerges as embodied by Nina Hoss—a true queen in today's cinema—and her slender, lean physique becomes that of a post-war zombie, a ghost embodied, tottering and halting, a body not familiar with movements outside the camp, »

Your instincts tell you to look away from the screen, but you can't. Your heart thumps harder, your veins pulsate with adrenalin and your fists clench as tightly as possible. Running for it is out of the question, despite the nearby 'Exit' sign clearly highlighted in green neon lights. But why? As the horror masterpiece It Follows demonstrates, being scared s**tless is an addictive sensation.
There's a primal, hypnotic feel to writer-director David Robert Mitchell's movie, which grabs your attention immediately with a brutal opening featuring the mangled body of a teenage girl on the beach as the waves lap the shore. We're soon introduced to the magnificent Maika Monroe's Jay, an alienated 19-year-old whose life takes a horrendous turn after 'something' is passed on to her during an amorous encounter. »
At one point in “Accidental Love,” the movie’s crusading heroine flips on a TV and catches a glimpse of George A. Romero’s seminal 1968 zombie opus “Night of the Living Dead.” And, like one of Romero’s own restless undead, this mirthless, misshapen social satire cum romantic comedy has managed to crawl out of the early grave to which it was consigned in 2008, back when its title was “Nailed” and its director was David O. Russell. Pieced together by unknown parties after years stuck in litigation (resulting from the bankruptcy of financier David Bergetsin’s Capitol Films), “Accidental Love” turns out to be no “Margaret”-style diamond-in-the-rough, but merely a not-particularly-interesting curio from the low ebb of a great director’s career. Russell (credited here as Stephen Greene), original producers Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher, and the starry ensemble cast have understandably kept their distance from this opportunistic cash-grab release, »

It could be the dawn of a new era for Rick Grimes and the group after the events of last night's The Walking Dead, but only time will tell whether or not they can truly sink into safety and stop looking over their shoulders. Offering a tease of what's to come in next week's Greg Nicotero-directed episode, "Remember", a new video shows Carl inspecting a potential threat in a scene that's somewhat reminiscent of Ben's upstairs investigation in George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead.
Episode 512: "Remember" - "The group has a difficult time molding to a new lifestyle, forcing them to consider whether they can be the people they once were."
"Remember" is directed by Greg Nicotero and airs next Sunday, March 1st, at 9:00pm Est on AMC.
