Celebrating the life of the Father of the Undead
George A. Romero, who established himself as the father of the modern zombie film with his unforgettable 1968 debut feature Night of the Living Dead, passed away this year at the age of 77, leaving behind an incomparable legacy of cinematic scares. Before Night of the Living Dead creeps back onto TIFF Bell Lightbox screens this Halloween, preview the horror that awaits with an episode of TIFF Un/cut.
In this episode, you'll hear all about Romero's process of making movies, his take on modern zombie stories, and that time he and a very young Martin Scorsese got into a fight over a copy of a classic opera film.
