The film that launched the undying zombie hordes remains a terrifying, socially conscious classic a half-century after its release.
Frequently dubbed "zombie king" or "the knight of the living dead", George A Romero was also a prophet of Hollywood's doom. "Hollywood is dead," Romero told the Filmmakers Newsletter Magazine in 1972, in an interview posthumously published. What the father of the modern zombie meant, was that Hollywood was being taken over by an army of flesh-eating ghouls who would eventually destroy the film industry.
Once upon a time, kids were introduced to the wild, wonderful world of horror through slender volumes like the immortally terrifying Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (the version with the original Stephen Gammell artwork — not the significantly toned-down drawings glimpsed in contemporary copies). — Max Brooks, who literally wrote the book on the walking dead in the form of The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z.

Directed by Christopher Landon (marking a rather marked shift in tone for the filmmaker behind ’Paranormal Activity: the Marked Ones’), ‘Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse’ - originally entitled simply ‘Scouts Vs Zombies’ - pits a largely unknown young cast against the walking dead.
