GodFather of All Zombie Flicks comes to Rahway - The distance between Mister Rogers? Neighborhood and a colony of flesh-eating zombies is shorter than you might suppose. The connecting link is Night of the Living Dead filmmaker George Romero, who jokes that making short films for the popular Pittsburgh children?s show inspired him to write his first horror flick. ?I shot segments like Things with Wheels, How a Light Bulb is Manufactured,? he recalled in a recent interview. ?But Mr. Rogers Gets a Tonsillectomy was the scariest film I?ve ever made.? A 35mm reel presentation of Night of the Living Dead will be shown at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, April 12 at Union County Performing Arts Center, 1601 Irving Street in downtown Rahway, as part of the monthly UCPAC Classic Film Series. Admission is $5 at the door.
