2011 / Director. Numerous.
I'll keep this one brief. George Romero presents DEADTIME STORIES is a con. The artwork and anthological concept lulls unsuspecting genre fans with false sense of security. People would not be wrong to assume that this is potentially a new attempt to recapture the magic of Creepshow and with Romero himself serving as our host, how bad could it be? The answer - REALLY BAD. I'm not too sure when or where Romero's interluding segments come from but they're very brief. He is glimpsed through a television screen, sitting in a chair, reading from a book. He spurts off shitty little ditties with no actual insight into the pending short. I am going to assume that his appearance was shot for something else and slapped on to this in haste. Like Creepshow, this is presented as an anthology of short films (6) spanning two volumes. I'll be honest... I didn't make it to the end of the first volume and I doubt I'll tempt any more. Imagine attending a first year film school presentation night... the shorts are terrible. They may as well have been filmed on an iPhone and the acting is atrocious. How much involvement George Romero actually had with this project is unknown and whether he actually watched it is doubtful. These DVDs sales probably made some money and it's criminal... fans have been mislead and ripped off. This is rubbish!
