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.
