Today, February 4th, marks horror maestro George Romero's 70th birthday. Happy Birthday, George! To celebrate we've got a day full of zombie-related merriment planned. For starters, we're declaring it "Tweet Like a Zombie Day". Hit the jump for the full details.
Here's what we've got planned:
Tributes to Romero from such horror luminaries as Guillermo Del Toro, Mick Garris, and Max Brooks.
Video interviews with Romero and cast members of his Dead films.
Full-length, free streaming movies featuring the consequences of zombie-like outbreaks, including Mulberry Street, the aptly titled J-horror film Infection and David Cronenberg’s classic Shivers.
Zombie American, a short starring The Hangover’s Ed Helms.
A Jobs of the Damned video lesson from our old friend actor Doug Jones on how to move like a zombie.
A review of Kevin Hamedani’s post-9-11 political horror-comedy Zombies of Mass Destruction, part of this year’s After Dark Horrorfest.
Original zombie haikus penned by visitors to our site.
And since no birthday is complete without cake, we're serving up a gallery of the best zombie-themed birthday cakes from around the web. To top things off, we'll “tweet like a zombie,” retweeting zombie-related comments from horror fans and notables all day long.
So keep stopping back, and say hi. Or, more appropriately, say, "Braaaiiiins!"
