George A. Romero invented the modern zombie in his seminal film, Night of the Living Dead. Without Romero, there would be no World War Z, no The Walking Dead. Two of Romero’s biggest admirers and collaborators join together for a candid conversation on the themes, ideas and messages behind the legend’s greatest work: “The Godfather of Gore” Tom Savini (special effects artist, actor, director, stunt man, teacher, mentor) and New York Times bestselling author Daniel Kraus (The Shape of Water), who has posthumously completed the zombie novel Romero left behind when he passed in 2017. The newly released The Living Dead (August 4, 2020), is a story of the zombie plague, from first rising to the fall of humankind – and beyond. This conversation was moderated by film critic Walter Chaw.
