Romero, George Movie Posters


Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original George Romero vintage movie posters, from his critically acclaimed catalog of timeless cinematic contributions.

George Romero is an American film director, writer, and producer who was best known for his contributions to the horror movie genre.

After graduating in 1960 from the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) in Pittsburgh, Romero filmed short segments for Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, a popular children’s television series created in Pittsburgh. In 1968 Romero and several friends shared their money to invest Romero’s first feature, the low-budget zombie film Night of the Living Dead. The movie was not a commercial success at the time of its release, but it was eventually acknowledged as a horror masterpiece, and it served as the foundation for a unique mythos. The Romero zombie was unrelated to the Vodou zombie that had influenced most zombie lore until that point. Instead, it was a shambling corpse that fed upon the living, and it became a mainstay in film and fiction.

Romero co-wrote (with John Russo) the screenplay for Night of the Living Dead, and he went on to write and direct several related films, starting with the popular Dawn of the Dead (1978) and continuing with Day of the Dead (1985), Land of the Dead (2005), Diary of the Dead (2007), and Survival of the Dead (2009). The Dead series was rife with social commentary, with allusions to the Cold War, consumerism, and class conflict. In addition to zombies, Romero’s films have explored other horror movie staples, including witchcraft in Hungry Wives (1972; rereleased as Season of the Witch), biological weapons run amok in The Crazies (1973); vampires in Martin (1977), and animals wreaking havoc in Monkey Shines (1988), a film about a homicidal helper monkey.

Romero began a long-term partnership with renowned American horror novelist Stephen King in 1981, with King making a brief onscreen appearance in Romero’s film Knightriders. The following year Romero directed King’s screenplay for Creepshow (1982). They worked together again on Creepshow 2 (1987), with Romero writing the screenplay based on King’s stories. Romero was executive producer of the television series Tales from the Darkside (19841988), and King and Romero collaborated as writers on the movie of the same name, released in 1990. The two continued their professional relationship when Romero directed and wrote the film adaptation of King’s novel The Dark Half (1993).
