That would be me on left as “redneck zombie”, and old friend Mike Lucas on the right as “sweatervest zombie” in the Tom Savini directed reboot of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. George Romero promised to give me a line in his next movie and kept his promise.
40 Days of Horror -- Day 13 -- Favorite Zombie Film
Night of the Living Dead (1968). This movie is a classic. Romero is a genius. This is the first major film with the zombies that we know and love today and it has been really cool to see how zombies have evolved over the years from this film, starting out as pale, slow creatures who were brain dead, to some of the zombies we see today where they are decomposing, some can run and open doors, and some even have memories from when they were alive.
