I’d like to take a minute to discuss two things. First, today is the birthday of one mister George A. Romero, the original king of the undead. Let’s hope he continues to bring us amazing films even after he’s died and inevitably returned from the dead.
Second, speaking of birthdays, it’s the 3rd BIRTHDAY for the Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse. Three years ago today Cory Casciato decided to give us the best bits of zombie news, reviews, and editorials that we desperately wanted. I’ve been lucky to be a part of this endeavor over the last few months and I hope I can still be a part of it for years to come. Thanks Cory, you’re pretty awesome…. Also, “BRAINS…..!”
