Horror 101 – Episode 67: The Romero Special (Day of the Dead) – Aug 15th, 2017

February 4, 1940 – July 16, 2017

Welcome back listeners! We weren’t expecting to return so soon but the death of our beloved Lord of the Undead; writer/director George Romero has forced us back to the mic for another special remembrance podcast. Only minutes after the news of George’s death was circulated we were inundated with requests from friends and colleagues who pleaded for a Horror 101 Romero show. Not just that, they wanted to be involved in the recording. So this show is going to have 9 of us getting together to share our Romero stories from when we met him. How his movies affected us growing up and what it was like to be on a Romero set for Land of the Dead. We also watch Day of the Dead to keep in tune with our threequel theme this year. Clocking in at just under an hour this is longest podcast since the Top 20. Join us as we pay tribute to The Godfather of the modern Zombie.
