George A. Romero Quotes

As a filmmaker you get typecast just as much as an actor does, so I'm trapped in a genre that I love, but I'm trapped in it!

As great as Ed is, the wisdom out here is that he can't carry a movie. They'll pay him $3 million to be the second banana in Julia Roberts things. But they won't put up $3 million for an Ed Harris movie.

I also have always liked the monster within idea. I like the zombies being us. Zombies are the blue-collar monsters.

I like guys who are understandable and good guys who are flawed.

I really believe that you could do horror very inexpensively. I don't think it has anything to do with the effects, the effects are not the most important parts.

I think you're only free if you're working on very low or huge money.

I thought Godzilla was a mess, the monster had no character and the humans didn't either. They forgot to make the movie that went along with all these wonderful effects.

If I fail, the film industry writes me off as another statistic. If I succeed, they pay me a million bucks to fly out to Hollywood and fart.

The guy that made me wanna make movies... and this is off the wall-is a guy named Michael Pal, the British director.

The most realistic blood I've seen is when Marlon Brando gets beat up in On The Waterfront.

There are so many factors when you think of your own films. You think of the people you worked on it with, and somehow forget the movie. You can't forgive the movie for a long time. It takes a few years to look at it with any objectivity and forgive its flaws.
