Horror movie legend slams 'The Walking Dead,' calls it a 'soap opera'

tv.yahoo.com Published: November 1, 2013

George Romero, the legendary horror filmmaker of “Night of the Living Dead,” told a British magazine he said no to an offer to direct episodes of the AMC mega-hit “The Walking Dead” because the drama is “just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally,” according to Yahoo TV.

“They asked me to do a couple of episodes of ‘The Walking Dead,’ but I didn’t want to be a part of it,” Romero said in the Halloween edition of The Big Issue. “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.”
