It's been almost 50 years since we were given night of the living dead by a young George Romero and he's finally getting full on mainstream recognition. His name will go alongside many of hollywoods best on the walk of fame and I, for one, couldn't be happier for it. Romero stormed onto the scene with the aforementioned zombie movie and not once looked back, creating the Zombie and recreating the horror genre as we know it. While a great many people may try to lay claim to such feats, few can say they've thrived in a genre as fickle for quality as Romero. On top of that, he has altered his own sub-genre to fit the masses more than once (the new dawn of the dead and the birth of the “fast zombie”). On top of zombie movies, Romero has given us such movies as creepshow, the crazies and season of the witch. Many of his movies have been remade and people will often credit him for getting them into movies. So While he hasn't passed, I really love the idea of having a marathon for him. I believe he's worth it.Night of the Living Dead (1968): The start of a beautiful thing, gritty and dark. I love this movie.Hours Remaining: 1,344Martin (1977): Renowned as his own favourite movie, Martin is a movie about a Vampire that visits his uncle in the creepiest place on Earth... Pittsburgh! Another gritty tale, some saying he did for Vampires what he did for Zombies. Though I cannot fully comment on that as vampires have changed so many times over the yearsHours Remaining: 1,249Dawn of the Dead (1978): Another in the line of zombie movies, this is set a couple weeks after the initial night and shows people trying to escape their fates. While none of the sequels are quite as hard hitting as the original, they all (this included) have some really nice scenes with practical effects.Hours Remaining:1,122Creepshow (1982): A black comedy anthology movie that leaves some people laughing and some so scared they don't want to sleep at night.Hours Remaining: 1,002Day of the Dead (1985): The zombies have overrun the Earth and only few spots in the U.S. have humanity left. It's the story of people trying to find solace from zombies.Hours Remaining: 902Monkey Shines (1988): A Super crappy horror movie about a quadriplegic who has a helper monkey that kills people. Really fun, but not good at all.Hours Remaining: 789Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990): Slated to be a sequel to Creepshow, though some say only in spirit. Less fun than the original, but still not bad at all.Hours Remaining: 696Dawn of the Dead (2004): A remake that involves a group of people stuck in a mall. The birth of the "fast zombie". Super fun.Hours Remaining: 596Land of the Dead (2005): A spiritual sequel to Dawn of the Dead, it shows the "animal farm" way of life that humans live and attempt to thrive while in the midst of zombies.Hours Remaining: 503Diary of the Dead (2007): Not a great movie, but kind of fun.Hours Remaining: 411Day of the Dead (2008): Another remake of a classic that is very loosely based on the original. Attempted to update it for the new age, but fell slightly short.Hours Remaining: 325Survival of the Dead(2009): The final zombie movie made by Romero senior, there is an origins movie directed by his son.Hours Remaining: 235The Crazies (2010): I chose to do the 2010 remake of the movie starring Timothy Olyphant in the title role because it's more accessible and much more entertaining to me. I enjoy this movie a whole bunch and it isn't quite a zombie movie. Very fun though.Hours Remaining: 101Before anyone goes and dives into this marathon, I want it known that it would be a very difficult marathon to get through. I love a lot of these movies, but many are very slow moving and I don't think it would be great for everyone. Just a warning.
