No zombies here, sadly

Advantages: The Crazies is a good film
Disadvantages: The other two are not nearly as worthwhile

...This boxset from Arrow Video is a rather excessive £50 at the moment. George A Romero is generally regarded as the director who gave birth to the modern horror film with Night of the Living Dead, made in 1968. It was gory, it was politically charged, and ...
