The venerable Toronto-based monster mag is serving up their 21st annual special Halloween Issue. Here's what's inside:
GENESIS OF THE LIVING DEAD
Fifty years after it was released, fellow directors John Landis and Joe Dante, along with Romero collaborators Ken Foree and Daniel Kraus, gather to discuss the importance of one of the most seminal horror films of all time: Night of the Living Dead. Plus! Judith O’Dea and Patricia Tallman re-examine Night’s lone female; John Russo’s ill-received 30th anniversary re-edit; Romero’s posthumous The Living Dead book and more.
