Masters Of Horror! (George Romero)

Ah, another easy one!

The Dead Series (1968-2009)

Covered the hell out of it here.

Season Of The Witch (1972)

A.K.A. "Hungry Wives", and "Jack's Wife".

The only one that George says he'd like to remake.
Sooo, I ain't chompin' at the bit to see that one.

The Crazies (1973)

See here, and here.

Martin (1978)

See here, and here.

Bears mentioning, Tom Savini has a role (sans mustache), and this was his first collaboration with Romero.

Song time!
(No, it's not in the flick, but it goes)

Knightriders (1981)

A biker gang goes all ren-fair, and joust each other on their bikes.
Seriously, the movie is mostly about the jousting.
There's some plot lazily slapped on there, but you're gonna see a lot of bike jousting.

Features Ed Harris, Tom Savini (reunited with his stache), and a cameo by Stephen and Tabitha King.

Creepshow (1982)

See here.

And bam, the (first) King creative crossover!
Savini is the garbage man.

Creepshow 2 (1987)

See here.

Monkey Shines (1988)

Really? This was a Romero?
You'd think they would have been like "from the director of 'Dawn Of The Dead', and 'Creepshow'!!".

*Reads up*
Orion mutilated it, I'll give it a miss.

Tales From The Darkside The Movie (1990)

See here.

Creepshow 3.

Night Of The Living Dead (1990)

The Savini remake.

*Wavey hand* ehhh....

Two Evil Eyes (1990)

The Romero Argento crossover.

Possibly the lowest point of both director's careers.

Eh...I'm not an Argento fan anyway....

Good on him for financing "Dawn Of The Dead", and spawning Asia Argento (see Land Of The Dead), but otherwise...meh.

The Dark Half (1993)

See here.

Bruiser (2000)

A guy picked on by everyone in his whole stinking open sewer of a life wakes up one day with his face transformed into a blank mask, which gives him the confidence to destroy all the assholes.

Sounds like fun! (8-D

The Crazies (2010)

Fuggin rema.....

Actually, I've heard it's pretty good.

And, that's Romero.

Up next, Clive Barker.
