Remembering George Romero, auteur of American zombie movies
Filmmaker George Romero has died at the age of 77. His cult classic "Night of the Living Dead," made for $100,000 in 1968, launched the modern zombie industry and countless imitators. But Romero's zombie flicks also offered him a platform for social commentary about American culture, racism, paranoia and consumerism. Jeffrey Brown discusses his life with Justin Chang of the Los Angeles Times.
