Weekend of the Living Dead

I think the proper term to describe this tidbit is "freakin' awesome." OK, first of all, filmmaker George A. Romero is the scheduled guest of honor at next month's seventh annual Nashville Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival, to be held Mar. 21-23 at the Nashville Airport Marriott. Hello? George Night of the Living Dead Romero? George Dawn of the Dead Romero? George Day/Land/Diary of the Dead Romero? Dude deserves a parade just for The Crazies alone. Wait, it gets better. Adrienne Barbeau, beloved of a generation of horny ’80s cable addicts for her work in John Carpenter's The Fog and Escape from New York (and don't forget Swamp Thing!), is scheduled to be on hand, as is Dee Wallace Stone from Joe Dante's The Howling and an obscure indie feature called E.T. Pioneering gore-effects whiz Tom Savini, Michael "The Hills Have Eyes" Berryman, Tony "Candyman" Todd and Halloween III: Season of the Witch director Tommy Lee Wallace are also listed in the line-up. What more could there possibly be? The answer's on the flyer in all caps: "LIVE FREAK & BURLESQUE SHOWS DAILY." In other words, it'll be just like the Republican or Democratic National Convention—only with, y'know, Adrienne Barbeau.
