I’ve known this news for a while but for the greater part of the Internet, this was a great treat last Friday.  Director George A. Romero will be making a rare appearance at Chicago’s Flashback Weekend in early August, as reported by Dread Central.  Courtesy of a press release by the Flashback Weekend team, it looks like they’ve lined up quite the guest list.  In addition to Romero, his Dawn of the Dead cast will be in attendance for a special 35th anniversary appearance.  The whole Dawn of the Dead team will be at the convention from Friday, August 9, until Sunday, August 10.  They will sign autographs and there will be special photo opportunities.

George A. Romero will also be on hand Friday night to present a 35mm 45th anniversary screening of his classic zombie film Night of the Living Dead.

My friend Justin Ferrari and I will be in attendance as well.  So that’s pretty cool too.

Hope to see you there!
