THE LAST KNOCK presents: Remembering George A. Romero

The Last KnockGeorge A. Romero brought the world a new kind of ghoul in 1968 with his seminal film, Night of the Living Dead. Since then, the social conscientious independent went on to write, produce, and helm many films around his adopted city of Pittsburgh.

Romero wasn’t just an indie filmmaker, but a career maker for some and an inspiration to others. We’ll look at this renowned gentleman and his life, and his work from the remainder of his “dead” series, to Martin, Creepshow, and more.

Horror lost a beloved director and master of the genre on July 16, but we extend our condolences and very best wishes to his family and friend because they lost much more.

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Occupational Hazards

The Last Knock

You may hate 9-to-5 drudgery, but some horror films truly showcase the workplace as a definitive occupational hazard.

We’ll take a look at The Belko Experiment, Resident Evil, Asylum Blackout and many more with occupational hazards from cooks, and miners, to innkeepers. Maybe you’ll finally appreciate where you’re employed a little more – or maybe you’ll feel frightened about what’s right around the corner besides your needling supervisor and his brown-nosed cronies.
