Winter and horror seem to be synonymous, whether it’s the cold days, long nights or the fact that some of the best horror films seem to be set in around this time of year (The Shining, anyone?). First and foremost, we have Halloween, swiftly followed by Guy Fawkes/Fireworks night, both steeped in traditions focusing on spirits and the dead. Even Christmas, if studied beyond the Christian ethos, has a dark and murky side. READ MORE
Hi again folks, and welcome to part two of The GARF’s For the Love of Horror blog series. Wait, you haven’t read part one?! Well go back and check it out, then come back!

I met the legend George Romero for the first and sadly only time back on the 12th July 2014. Little did I know that 12 months later I would be co-running an event totally dedicated to his movies and three years later we’d lose the man himself. However I’ve jumped ahead, so lets go back to 5th March 1984. This was the date I first got introduced to Romero’s nightmares through his vision Dawn of the Dead. Wow, what a movie, I was stunned, blown away..... READ MORE
Twenty years after his zombies last roamed the earth, horror king George Romero returned to the big screen with Land of the Dead. Tony Earnshaw travelled north to Edinburgh to meet the knight of the living dead.
