Sam Winter George Romero Research

I have chosen to analyse George Romero, as he is an experienced and iconic director of the horror genre. He is very highly rated and his films have been hugely successful. George Andrew Romero born February 4, 1940, is an American film director, screenwriter and editor, best known for his gruesome and satirical horror films about a hypothetical zombie apocalypse, beginning with Night of the Living Dead (1968). He is nicknamed the "Godfather of Zombies". He was influenced from a film called The Tales of Hoffman which he described as The film that changed my life. He, along with nine friends, formed Image Ten Productions in the late 1960s, and produced Night of the Living Dead (1968). The movie, directed by Romero and co-written with John A. Russo, became a cult classic and a defining moment for modern horror cinema. On October 27, 2009, Romero was honored with the Mastermind Award at Spike TV's Scream 2009. He is considered one of the most influential and iconic producers of this genre of all time and many people believed that his input to horror films has changed the genre forever. Filmography:
