George A. Romero

In 1968, George A. Romero released 'Night of the Living Dead', a landmark movie about flesh-eating zombies. Unwittingly, he created a template for the modern horror flick. Plus, by casting a black man as the hero, the film was interpreted as a comment on civil rights, and from then on, social criticism became a theme in George's work.

Now, as a special retrospective of his work opens in Toronto, we find out what sends George into a bloodthirsty rage, and why the dead refuse to leave him alone.

The retrospective is called 'Living Dread: The Cinema of George A. Romero'. It's playing at the TIFF Bell Lightbox from Oct. 31-Nov. 4.
