George Romero Insults The Walking Dead

It seems Romero isn’t a fan of The Walking Dead. During an interview for an article in the Halloween edition of The Big issue Magazine he was asked about The Walking Dead. His response left many people shocked.”They asked me to do a couple of The Walking dead episodes, but I didn’t want to be a part of it. Basically it’s just a Soap Opera with a zombie occasionally.I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism , and I find that missing in what’s happening now.” I think 16 million viewers might disagree with him on this one. It seems he also has an issue with modern zombie films and TV shows in general. I’ll be honest I would love to see an episode of The Walking Dead directed by Romero but that doesn’t look like that will ever happen.
