Binge Movie Aftertaste – George Romero’s Living Dead Retrospective w/ Mik Duffy Part IV: The Remakes
There’s no question that George Romero’s looks at the zombie apocalypse influenced a high number of filmmakers. There is also no question that these filmmakers did what they did in what they felt were nicely done homages. How Tom Savini, Zack Snyder, and Steve Miner did with the foundation Romero laid out is what is discussed in this podcast.
I’m not going to lie. As dire as the last podcast in this series was, there has probably been no movie as bad as one that is discussed here. After talking about all three of these movies, my co-host Mik Duffy and I talk about just how high Romero’s reach was, how his vision of zombies is still in use today, and what to expect in future Aftertastes. One of which involves Duffy coming back.
This has been a good series to revisit. I have had a blast dissecting these movies, and want to take this time to thank that annoying Bruce Springsteen fan Jack Falvey, who provided a lot of behind the scenes aspects of making this series of podcasts possible.
