What has Brad Anderson said about ‘Twilight Of The Dead’?

Talking about the newest installment in the Living Dead franchise, director Brad Anderson said: “George Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead may have been the first real horror movie I ever saw and its shock value, its keen social relevance, and even the means by which it was made were all hugely inspirational to me.” Continuing, the filmmaker added, “This too is a zombie movie in which limbs fly and heads roll, but one that is also about social transformation, one that asks the question: What is it to be human? It is also a horror movie with “heart” and, dare I say, hope.”
