George Romero interview

Further to my earlier post on tonight’s Creepshow screening, I note that the Toronto Star‘s Philip Brown has an interview with director George Romero worth reading here.

Romero on Hollywood remaking his classic horror films:

I try not to see them. I saw Dawn and thought it had lost its reason for being because there’s nothing about consumer society and what could they even say? Malls were already starting to close. And The Crazies? They even managed to turn that into a zombie movie.

Do you know that he lives in Toronto and now has dual citizenship? Who’d have thunk it.
