As part of our ongoing tribute to horrormeister George A. Romero, here’s a game for you to play at home.
Choose any film title and try adding “Of The Dead” to see if you can turn it into an appealing zombie flick. Not every combination works, but some are box office gold.
I tried going through the top 50 of IMDB’s Top 250 and was taken with these, any of which I would happily fork over my money for:The Godfather Of The Dead 12 Angry Men Of The Dead Rear Window Of The Dead Memento Of The Dead Taxi Driver Of The Dead To Kill A Mockingbird Of The Dead It’s A Wonderful Life Of The Dead
That last one’s my favourite – it sounds heart-warming. “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his face chewed off by re-animated corpses.” Stars Jimmy Stewart.

Finally, the statisticians at WordPress show me the Institute’s attendances went through the roof yesterday, so hello to all our new visitors! Tracey in the Outland Institute Gift Shop was totally exhausted by the end of the day, and needed a nice Kingston and a sit-down. (Also, we’re totally out of Wong Kar-Wai slippers, so please don’t ask.)
