Univer­sity gets film­maker Ge­orge Romero’s ar­chives

The Standard Journal - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

The Univer­sity of Pittsburgh is get­ting a spooky ad­di­tion: the ar­chives of late iconic hor­ror film­maker Ge­orge A. Romero.

Romero’s hor­ror flicks date back to the 1968 film “Night of the Liv­ing Dead,” and many con­sider him the god­fa­ther of zombie cinema.

The ar­chives will be avail­able to schol­ars, stu­dents and film­mak­ers and in­clude the orig­i­nal an­no­tated “Night of the Liv­ing Dead” script and a foam la­tex zombie head.

Univer­sity of­fi­cials say the col­lec­tion will be used to build an in­ter­na­tional re­source for the study of hor­ror and science fic­tion.
