Go away, Screen Rant. Nobody likes you and you smell weird.

There was Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead too but those were pretty terrible. Actually of all the Romero movies I really only like Dawn of the Dead and I like the Zack Synder version of that better anyway.

I was under the impression that "Dawn" and "Day" weren't real sequels because they weren't called "Living Dead".

But I don't know why I was under that impression.

George Romero is dead.
Create your own franchise.
Quit trying to make a buck off his corpse.

in NOTLD the dead were pretty much mopped up by morning by rednecks and cops. In Day and Dawn, the outbreak must have been much more devastating.

Fell down a research hole one day with Night of the Living Dead and all its spinoff sequels. Apparently one had Barbra somehow surviving by the power of white woman uselessness.

If I remember correctly, some other producer had rights to the term "Living Dead" so all of Romero's later movies only had Dead in the title, but at least the first two sequels are presumed actual sequels to the first one.

The Living Dead title was sold to the people who made the Return of the Living Dead movies, which are awesome in their own right but isn't the same universe, what with the talking zombies moaning "Braaaiinns" which doesn't happen in the Dead world.

Then there's Black Summer which takes place in the same world as Z Nation, the extended Walking Dead universe, and the Train to Busan movies and probably a half dozen more I can't think of right now.

We sure have created a lot of zombie entertainment in the past 50 years.

I remember there was some kind of legal fight and the result was Romero got to keep and use 'of the Dead" and the other guy, John Russo I think, got the rights to "of the Living Dead".

But I was also under the impression that the copyright issue on NotLD only meant anyone could produce and sell copies of NotLD because that specific movie was not protected by copyright. I didn't think it meant the title, story, and characters were all in the public domain too. It's why back in the VHS days there copies of NotLD being sold by a bunch of different companies. This article is saying that anyone could make a Night of the Living Dead movie and I don't think that's correct but maybe I'm wrong.

Zombie movies appearing again means the economy is heading to shiat.

Romero could use the phrase Dead while Russo got to use Living Dead,  Romero stayed truer to the original but Russo gave us Linnea Quigley dancing in a graveyard so i guess Russo wins

If you were alive and watching horror movies in the 1980s you might remember that there was/were colorized versions of NOTLD back when Ted Turner wanted to make every black and white movie into color.

Russo also gave us the NotLD 30th Anniversary Edition. At best, it's a wash.

A long time ago I made a website for Lori Cardille (she had written a book called "I'm Gonna Tell").
I was new to website design, taught myself using Microsoft Front Page and my neighbor knew her which is how I got the gig.
Never met her though.
I didn't know what I was doing.  I wasn't good at it.

That aside, I like the Romero Universe (though Diary & Survival are abysmal).
And I didn't have a problem with zombies evolving in Land, my issue was I'd rather be shot by a zombie than eaten by a zombie!
I'd rather get blown up with a molotov cocktail than eaten by a zombie!
So that took some of the bite (pun intended) out of the zombie movie!!

The 1990 remake of NotLD was meh, but the day after material was all you need to say about slow zombies. Sweep and corral, let the gun nuts get their squirrelies out on the zeds.
