… Film, Might Actually Get Made

"The father of the modern zombie film might have his final statement on the genre finished from beyond the grave. Those circumstances are incredibly sad, but also gruesomely poetic.

Before iconic filmmaker George A. Romero died in 2017, he was reportedly working on a new film called Twilight of the Dead. Romero saw it as his final goodbye to the genre he himself created all the way back in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead, and continued in the subsequent decades. He saw the films as having one overarching thematic narrative, which was going to culminate in Twilight of the Dead. But then, of course, he passed away due to lung cancer at age 77…"

G. Romero's creation of the zombie themed horror movie has scared me since I was 14 and sneaked out of the house to see a mid-night showing of his classic "Dawn of the Dead".

Although scared through my years by zombie movies, I always return to watching them like some twisted addiction. Seen really good ones (both original and remakes of "Night of the Living Dead" and "Dawn of the Dead" were great). So I really love this type of movie.

Hell, a friend and I created a whole set of rules and painted up a bunch of 28mm figures to PLAY zombie games on the table.

That said, George Romero made TERRIBLE zombie movies at the end of his life.

Land of the Dead with Denis Hopper was OK at first and then fell off the table.

Diary of the Dead was good, I liked the premise of the time where portable video was used by an amateur film maker to document the zombie rising.

Survival of the Dead was just horrible, his last zombie movie. When I saw "zombie cavalry", that was it for me.

Great ideas at the start, that many talented film makers picked up on and took forward, but I think Romero had run out of creative ideas on the theme.

Maybe some other film maker will finish this project, but in a way I'm glad that Romero did not make this film as it seemed his film making was on a decline.

Much like Quentin Tarantino and Orson Wells, his best work was his first products and later stuff ran from OK to very bad.

This news makes me happy. The genre is way overdone at this point, but I appreciate his vision. Cool to think that his idea for a movie spawned literally billions of dollars of industry.
