To celebrate George A. Romero’s 77th birthday on 4th February, Syfy will be screening the original classic Night of the Living Dead all day on Facebook from 11.30am EST to 11.40pm EST. The film will then air on the Syfy channel at 11.42 EST, so those who aren’t drawn to Facebook all day can get a chance to celebrate.
Night of the Living Dead changed the face of horror and created the zombies that we love to be scared of today. Without him, there’d be no Walking Dead, 28 Days Later or Shaun of the Dead. It’s a crazy world to imagine, so thank goodness we have those rotting corpses in our lives.
From everyone at Scream; Happy Birthday, George A. Romero!
