Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 10 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection. And this week that connection plain sucks.
Hosts Tom Clark, Mr. Scott, Smoking Walt Ball and Azriel Mordecai lament a fallen hero this week as we remember George Romero.
Some call George A. Romero the Godfather of modern horror. It’s no doubt that along side partner (and guest on the Necrocasticon a year ago this week!) John Russo, he gave birth to the modern zombie craze. But Romero was much more than a zombie auteur. He was a Renaissance man, a pioneer in independent film making who’s contributions to the horror and fantasy genres cannot be ignored. We’ll touch on all of that and more as we remember his legacy.
But that’s not all. We also remember Dave Z of Adrenaline Mob, who also died tragically this weekend. And we find out about Martin Landau, as well, with breaking news as we were recording this chapter.
How could we remember George Romero without talking to a person who wouldn’t be making films had it not been for the path blazed by Romero? We can’t. Therefor, earlier in the week before this tragic news hit, Tom had an opportunity to talk with Western NY film maker Adam Steigert about his upcoming movie FANG! Adam recently finishing principal photography on the extreme horror werewolf film and he joins us to talk about it and tell us how the story came about.
