Check Out These Full Color Bts Photos From Night Of The Living Dead

Do you like The Walking Dead? iZombie? Resident Evil? Hell, anything with the shambling undead in it? Well, you can trace the DNA of all of those back to George Romero’s 1968 horror masterpiece Night of the Living Dead.

It’s a film that more than lives up its lofty reputation, combining social commentary that (sadly) remains bold to this day and some genuinely terrifying zombie thrills. One of the reasons it’s so scary is that it’s shot in black and white. This was chosen primarily for budgetary reasons (the film was shot for a mere $114,000), yet it gives it an indelibly timeless, stark and brutal quality.

So, it’s fascinating to see these color behind the scenes photos from the set, which give us an idea of what things might have looked like had it not been in black and white.

George Romero’s The Crazies Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah

“Look, we’ve quarantined the area. We’re sealing off the town!”

The Crazies screens Midnights this weekend (January 19th and 20th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Nite Grindhouse film series.

Just in case some stubborn people are still questioning the late George A. Romero’s talent after his 1968 milestone Night Of The Living Dead, do us all a favor and head over ot The Moolah this weekend for the midnight screenings of his 1973 horror follow-up The Crazies! Once again a film stuffed with subtle criticism on society and pitch black humor. The Crazies immediately demands your full attention with a powerful pre-credits opening sequence and the high-excitement level is upheld throughout the entire movie. The little Pennsylvanian town of Evans City is overcome with a secret, but very lethal, government virus leaving the infected either dead or incurably insane.

Day Of The Dead: Bloodline Blu-Ray Release Date Revealed

As is the case with any genre or subgenre, the key to allowing it to live on is to examine it from different perspectives and hopefully break some new ground. For the past fifteen years or so, zombies – and, to a lesser extent, vampires that sparkle – have been all the rage. But after digesting them in countless movies, video games and TV shows, even this longtime Resident Evil fan has admittedly experienced fatigue.

Of course, none of this would’ve been possible if George Romero didn’t pave the way back in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead. In the time since, he’d concocted several beloved sequels, each of which infused social commentary with unimaginable horror. That being said, it’s no wonder why the late director is still able to make new fans to this day.

Now, I’m not sure if there’s a record for such

‘The Breakfast Club’ Deleted Scene Offers a Glimpse of Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy’s Growing Friendship — Watch
Good things happen when the Criterion Collection gets its hands on a beloved movie. The latest example is “The Breakfast Club,” which is being released on Blu-ray and DVD next month complete with the usual bevy of supplements — including a deleted scene involving Claire (Molly Ringwald) and Allison (Ally Sheedy), which just premiered early via Vulture. Watch it below.

The brief scene, which is rather low quality, finds the soon-to-be friends communing in the bathroom — or, rather, Claire unsuccessfully attempting to get Allison to open up to her. “I’m sorry, I don’t want to depress you,” she says after commenting on the fact that Allison is eating in there. “Really, I was just reacting to something I consider a little out of the ordinary. If you’d like to talk, I think I can handle it.

Science of Scares: The Real-Life Horrors of Crowds

Walking towards the entrance of the mall this time of year incites feelings both thrilling and dreadful. It’s not the promise of mind-boggling sales or a free gift with purchase, but rather the instant replay in my mind of every great horror story set inside of one of America’s most sacred spaces (including Mannequin).

This replay typically starts of course with George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, filmed just a few miles from my former home in Pittsburgh at the Monroeville Mall (there used to be a little museum inside with all kinds of memorabilia, but it’s now relocated to Evan’s City where Night of the Living Dead was shot). Holiday shoppers morph into hordes of zombies in my mind, stalking their way through the aisles with nothing but Brains on their minds... The reminder of Romero’s zombies makes the whole experience a little more tolerable,

Day of the Dead: Bloodline Trailer Reimagines Romero's Classic

Day of the Dead: Bloodline Trailer Reimagines Romero's Classic
The first trailer for Day of the Dead: Bloodline is here. The original Day of the Dead is one of the most classic zombie movies ever made and remains one of director George A. Romero's finest moments. So the idea of remaking it, or "reimagining" it, is considered sacred ground for many. If you were to call this movie something else, it might look like a pretty fun zombie movie. But this is delicate glass and it's going to be tough not to take that into account.

Day of the Dead: Bloodline looks like it will take the very basic premise of the original, but it's going to add a lot of its own flare. We have some of the imagery needed to call it Day of the Dead. There's an underground bunker, plenty of zombies and Bub. A new version of Bub, but Bub the zombie is still here.

Deathdream

Average fans of A Christmas Story likely don’t know that director Bob Clark had once made creepy horror pictures with Alan Ormsby, but this independent shock effort of the early ’70s still casts a spell of dread. Although Vietnam is never mentioned, the war’s shadow strikes deep into the heart of a small-town family. John Marley and Lynn Carlin lead a fine cast.

The Fog Star Adrienne Barbeau Refused To Be In The Devil’s Rejects

One thing that can always be expected in a Rob Zombie film is that he often uses horror genre icons and veterans. A great example of this is his 2005 effort The Devil’s Rejects. The House of 1000 Corpses sequel features appearances from stars like Ken Foree, Michael Berryman and P.J. Soles among others, but it turns out that one very interesting actress actually refused to be in the film – none other than Adrienne Barbeau.

She’s a fabulous scream queen you may recognize from the works of John Carpenter like Escape From New York and The Fog, while she also played a role in George Romero’s Creepshow. But according to Barbeau, who recently spoke with Tom Holland’s Terror Time, she wasn’t too interested in taking on The Devil’s Rejects.

“I’ve turned down myriad roles. Sometimes after reading 20 pages of the script. And especially if
