Austin Chronicle interviews George Romero

Posted on March 1, 2008 by Matt-M-McElroy

Drop by the Austin Chronicle’s website for an interesting discussion between Spencer Parsons and Diary of the Dead director George Romero:

George Romero’s latest state of the union via flesh-eating legions of the undead

I just can’t resist that stuff, man. I grew up on EC comic books, and it’s all gags and puns. I don’t think of my films as particularly scary. There are startles in them. I think maybe Night of the Living Dead is the only one maybe that gets under your skin a little. … The Amish farmer, though, I really sweated that one! Because of the format, I thought, “Can I really do something that silly?” Obviously I came down on the silly side. … Sometimes you get wacky ideas and think, “I should probably throw that out.” But it could be throwing the baby out with the bathwater. I mean we all know it’s a movie. Gimme a break. Let’s just have as much fun as we can.

This is a great interview, plenty of fun quotes from Romero. Enjoy!
