Acerca de


"They're coming to get you, Barbara. . ." These five words unleashed a terrifying movie classic on an unsuspecting public in 1968, stunning audiences with endless nightmares. George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead raised the bar for onscreen violence. Moviegoers were bludgeoned with horrific scenes of zombies blood-feasting on human body parts. Nothing was taboo. A six-year-old child nibbling on her daddy's arm! Plunging a garden tool into her mother's heart! More blood spewed onscreen than ever before! And yet, people returned for more--in hordes. The zombie movie phenomenon had officially been spawned. This is the true story of the flesh-eating classic that started it all.

"George Romero's zombies. He influenced a whole culture." --John Carpenter
"A new standard for horror." --Variety

"It's nice to see Joe Kane -- aka The Phantom of the Movies -- emerge from the video aisles with another book. . . it's a goodie. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE MOST TERRIFYING HORROR MOVIE EVER covers George Romero's 1968 classic from idea to influence."

From Booklist:

This chatty but valuable piece of cinema history offers a complete study of the creation and consequences of one of the most famous horror movies ever made, George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. After briefly covering the predecessors of this zombie masterpiece, the book proceeds to describe concept, casting, scripting, cinematography, and doing everything on a budget that would not pay a modern equivalent’s catering bill. We also have analyses of the movie’s role in elevating the status of zombies in American popular culture, including both movies and, lately, the print media. We even have a look at the Living Dead Festival for the movie’s numerous and tenacious fans, and a “Where are they now?” for the people involved (some departed, none of these known to have returned). Most valuable, perhaps, is a complete screenplay. In equal measure entertaining and informative, this one belongs in sf, fantasy, horror, and pop-culture collections alike. --Roland Green
