George A. Romero to Receive a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
George A. Romero, the “Grandfather of the Dead”, is being awarded a star on Hollywood’s “Walk of Fame”! The 76-year-old director shocked and terrified audiences when he brought us 1968’s Night of the Living Dead, a film that many claim as the beginning of the zombie craze in the horror genre. The film generated several sequels, including the revered Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead as well as the lesser loved but still highly entertaining Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, and Survival of the Dead.
Outside of the zombie genre, Romero was responsible for films such as The Crazies, Martin, Monkey Shines, Bruiser, and a segment of the anthology horror film Creepshow.
