George A. Romero, king 'of the Dead' attacks NYC

If you're in New York City this weekend, do not miss out on the chance to see zombie master George A. Romero during a film retrospective at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

The weekend kicks off May 15 and includes an 8 p.m. screening of the latest (and fifth) Romero zombie film, Survival of the Dead, followed by a Q&A with the director. The original 1968 Night of the Living Dead (shown) will also show on Saturday, along with the non-zombie flick, The Dark Half.  The weekend retrospective continues on Sunday with showings of Monkey Shines and Creepshow.
