Why George A. Romero Won’t Direct An Episode Of ‘The Walking Dead’
Interesting bits from a conversation the godfather of zombie horror had with The Big Issue.
When asked if zombies will ever lose their appeal.
Not in my book! Once they bleed out of pop culture I’ll be able to go back and do them again. I don’t want to touch them now. Gosh, they are all over the place.The Walking Deadis the number one television series in the States,World War Z, games, commercials… Ugh! It’s too much!
So, in a nutshell, zombies are currently too mainstream for the dude who made them famous and he won’t make any more zombie movies until they aren’t cool anymore.
When asked how it feels to be the father of zombies.
It feels like I don’t have a horse in the race. They asked me to do a couple of episodes of The Walking Dead but I didn’t want to be a part of it. Basically it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism and I find that missing in what’s happening now.
Okay, sorry Mr. Romero, but A.) the tension between human characters in the face of the undead onslaught is was made me fall in love with your movies in the first place and B.) there’s kind of a shit ton of zombies in The Walking Dead. As for zombies being used as political criticism, that doesn’t become obvious until the end of Night of the Living Dead and maybe halfway through Day of the Dead. If anything, The Walking Dead turns the concept of a zombie apocalypse into a microscope examining the primal core of what makes us human.
Maybe he turned it down because it’s like having your hot ex-girlfriend’s trendier, more attractive new fiancé ask you to make a speech at their wedding reception. Or… maybe he actually meant all those things he said. What do I know. I’m just a blogger who watches TV and occasionally masturbates way too much. And by occasionally, I mean all the time.
Reblogging this to point out the fact that it was reblogged by someone with the Tumblr name nerd0sexual and someone else with the name slightly-homosexual-tendencies. That’s what I get for discussing my masturbatory habits in an article about George A. Romero.
Been writing a lot lately. Hopefully I’ll stop being lazy and turn these into finished comics.
My fiancée is effing awesome. Not only does she take off work and down the day at the hospital with me, but she surprised me with three packs of Magic cards… And I got good ones!!!! I effing love you @yayaorwhatever!!!!
Finally discharged! After over 24 hrs in the ER and all kinds of tests and scans, my diagnosis: fainting. FAINTiNG!!! Effing clowns. When did Captain Obvious open a school for Doctors?
Hospital din-din. Been here since about 3:00pm yesterday. Really hoping I don’t have to stay here another night. I just want to go home and watch like a thousand hours of Adventure Time/Regular Show. #happyplace
