Here's something to maybe request as a Halloween gift...coming in October of this year: Gospel of the Living Dead: George Romero's Visions of Hell of Earth. From Baylor University Press:
This volume connects American social and religious views with the classic American movie genre of the zombie horror film. For nearly forty years, the films of George A. Romero have presented viewers with hellish visions of our world overrun by flesh-eating ghouls. This study proves that Romero's films, like apocalyptic literature or Dante's Commedia, go beyond the surface experience of repulsion to probe deeper questions of human nature and purpose, often giving a chilling and darkly humorous critique of modern, secular America.
I'll be working on a review of this for you folks. You can use this link to pre-order it!
