Abstract

It has been almost ten years since George A. Romero made Survival of the Dead, the final film in his series of living dead films, and now his final film. At that time, he had been working on the comics series, Empire of the Dead (20142015) for Marvel, and, most recently, was seeking funding for a new film, Road of the Dead, co-written with Matt Birman, who would direct. Romero made sixteen films in his nearly fifty-year career as an artist of the macabre and satirical. Even There’s Always Vanilla (1971), despite Romero’s attempt to take a career-varying left turn after his game-changing Night of the Living Dead (1968), weaves scenes of dread into its social satire.
