Here's Vanity Fair's 2010 interview with the late, great American indie filmmaker George A. Romero ("Night of the Living Dead"), who died today at the age of 77.
"Filmmakers saw what was happening in video games and started thinking, 'Well, we’ve got to keep pace and make our zombies fast too.' I still don’t agree with it. If zombies are dead, how can they move fast? My guys don’t run. They never have and they never will. They’re just lumbering oafs that are easy to dispose of unless you make a mistake. Those are the rules, and I’ll stick with what I’ve got."
