Zombies! Romero! Bloor Cinema!
Continuing his love affair with Toronto, American horror king George A. Romero will be stopping by the Bloor Cinema this coming Sunday to answer some audience questions and offer a sneak peek at his upcoming Diary of the Dead. The legendary director, who may not have actually invented zombies, is still single-handedly responsible for the modern portrayal of the cinematic undead. Filmed in Toronto (like its predecessor, Land of the Dead), and premiering September 8 at the Toronto International Film Festival, Diary looks to be a promising addition to Romero’s renowned series of zombie films from the photos posted earlier this week. Sunday night’s chat, hosted by the fine folks at Rue Morgue, will cost $25 at the door or $20 in advance; it’ll be a good bet to get out early.
