The Crazies

George A. Romero

Celebrating the work of the late George A. Romero (1940-2017), BFMAF 2017's closing gala presents a brand new restoration of his 1973 epidemic thriller The Crazies, introduced by Artist in Profile, Peggy Ahwesh. The greatest horror director of all time, Romero pioneered the zombie genre with masterpieces Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, but The Crazies is the film that quite literally drove him to insanity.
