Matt Mogk is the founder of the Zombie Research Society. You may also know him from his book, TV appearances, or his recent interview on Daily Dead. He’s spearheading an effort to get George Romero a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and we thought this is something our readers would like to get involved in.
“If you’re a fan of zombie movies, zombie video games, or zombie books. If you participate in zombie walks, or you’re involved in zombie culture in any way, you have legendary director George A. Romero to thank for that.
Romero invented the modern zombie with his 1968 horror classic Night of the Living, launching a global phenomenon that continues to infect pop culture more than 40 years later.
Help give something back to the man who’s given us so much by donating to the effort to get George Romero a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
If you can only spare a dollar, give a dollar. If $5 is your limit, that’ great. Our hope is that zombie fans around the world take advantage of this opportunity to show Romero what the monster he created has meant to us all. Together we will make it happen!”
This effort has already been endorsed and supported by Simon Pegg, Scott Ian, and Penn & Teller, among others. We’ll also be doing our part to support their efforts and help get our readers involved.
