The Hero ComplexFIVE QUESTIONS: GEORGE A. ROMERO With "Survival of the Dead," horror auteur George A. Romero, now 70, resurrects the series that began more than 40 years ago with the game-changing zombie film "Night of the Living Dead." The Toronto-based writer/director....
'The Crazies': George Romero remake amps up the anxiety, but loses the social conscience of the original.Brand XThe latest entry in the open-ended remake sweepstakes is "The Crazies," based on an early George A.
