Night of the Living Dead Live Opens in Toronto

A great nod to a classic horror film

I don't try and hide my love of zombies. Something about the insatiable thirst for flesh, the shambling (or fast runs, depending on the film), the cultural significance. I love every gory moment of classic zombie films. And what's more classic than Night of the Living Dead? I'd probably argue that nothing even comes remotely close. And I'm not the only person who feels that way.

Toronto film company Nictophobia Films, approached the three masterminds behind NOTLD: George A Romero, Russ Streiner and John Russo about 2 years ago with a concept to produce a live stage version of their 45 year old horror classic.

This week I got a chance to speak to two of those masterminds (and cross off a bucket list item). I got to talk to Streiner and Russo about the classic film, NOTLD Live, and how a small group of Toronto fans were given the chance to bring the movie to life. 

I thought about transcribing these interviews, but both Russ and John were so bloody interesting, I wanted to share the raw clips with you, so that those of you who geek out as much as I do can hear all the fascinating stuff they have to say about NOTLD and the new live show

I was so impressed with the preview and the praise that these two gentlemen gave that I want to share the NOTLD Live experience with you!
