Day of the Dead

Eat it up.


Horror

Patrick Crain
With the exception of George Lucas’s Star Wars movies, few franchises that laid their foundation on the big screen were as culturally significant as George A. Romero’s Dead films. Everything about our conception of zombies derive from Romero’s creations. Before Night of the Living Dead — Romero’s stark, groundbreaking drive-in shocker from 1968 — zombies were barely in the public’s collective wheelhouse. Usually featured as trance-like beings who were used as slave labor, zombies were more tools of an insidious puppet master than a force unto themselves. Heck, before Night of the Living Dead, the term “undead” was mostly used to describe vampires.

LETTERS


Letters to the Editor

Lynn Rambo-Jones
Each year, Gov. Mary Fallin sponsors a food bank drive asking state employees to contribute. The food collected is donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. On first consideration, this seems like a laudable effort.
