If you just gasped in horror while reading that headline, you might want to take another deep breath before reading the whole story.
George A. Romero's career as a director has spanned well over 40 years now, with 16 feature films to his credit (plus one O.J. Simpson documentary!). Though mostly known as the father of the modern day zombie movie, and of course the director of the three best zombie movies ever made, Romero has also strayed away from the undead to direct a handful of non-zombie flicks over the years, including films like Creepshow and Martin, and even the non-horror films Knightriders and There's Always Vanilla.
Whatever happened to the unwritten rule that filmmakers should wait the better part of a generation before remaking/rebooting a film?
