In this comprehensive portrait of horror's definitive director, Tony Williams ties George A. Romero's films to the development of literary naturalism and American culture, expanding the artist's creative footprint beyond his mastery of the "splatter movie" genre. Williams locates Romero's influences in the work of Emile Zola, the Entertainment Comics of the 1950s, and the novels of Stephen King, revealing the interdisciplinary depth of his seminal filmsNight of the Living Dead (1968), Creepshow (1982), Monkey Shines (1988), andThe Dark Half (1992). For this second edition, Williams reads Romero's Bruiser (2000) against his more recent Land of the Dead (2005) and takes a fresh look atDiary of the Dead (2007) and Survival of the Dead (2009), two overlooked films that feature Romero's greatest achievements yet.
In the decade of Spielberg and Lucas and "pre-sold" sequels, Hollywood learned to adapt to video, pay-per-view and cable television. Moviegoers no longer had to go to the movies. Volume 10 of this acclaimed series chronicles the biggest transformation since the late 1940s in the way Hollywood did business.
