The Living Dead

George A. Romero was a god, friends.  He single handedly invented the modern zombie with his Living Dead films. If you somehow haven't seen them, do. Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead and Land of the Dead are the foundation of the Zombie myth.

Romero's untimely death robbed us of new movies from him. It turns out that even from the grave he has more to add to the mythos.

According to Amazon:

It begins with one body.
A pair of medical examiners find themselves battling a dead man who won’t stay dead.
It spreads quickly.
In a Midwestern trailer park, a Black teenage girl and a Muslim immigrant battle newly-risen friends and family. On a US aircraft carrier, living sailors hide from dead ones while a fanatic makes a new religion out of death. At a cable news station, a surviving anchor keeps broadcasting while his undead colleagues try to devour him. In DC, an autistic federal employee charts the outbreak, preserving data for a future that may never come.
Everywhere, people are targeted by both the living and the dead.
We think we know how this story ends.

We. Are. Wrong.
