George Romero makes a living from the undead

Horror movies have thrown up some dubious, disturbing content in recent years. The writers and directors behind movies such as the Hostel and Saw series are an odd bunch, too.

Generally, today's horror directors appear to have an unhealthy passion for mutilation and death. Yet away from the screen, many of them are young, middle-class boys with nary a worry in the world.

George A. Romero is of the old school. The director best known for his series of five Dead films -- from Night of the Living Dead in 1968 to this year's Diary of the Dead -- is a humble gentleman and an unlikely purveyor of zombie thrills.
