George A Romero QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A good character is always slightly unexpected, or a character that makes a turn or where you can see the character arc and watch he/she develop... not obvious... obviously a good guy or bad guy.

I never liked the Friday The 13th movies, or any of that. It's just not my bag. It's a genre that I guess current audiences haven't seen in a while, or haven't seen at all. I have a 14-year-old daughter, and the first one of those she ever watched, she only watched because of peer pressure.
Quotation of George A Romero

I think people that love the genre giggle at it. I don't get grossed out, I giggle.
Quotation of George A Romero
I think today's audiences, the audiences that make the big money for a studio, are out for whatever the latest event picture is, or the must-see stuff. I think it's a different crowd.
Quotation of George A Romero
I think you're only free if you're working on very low or huge money.
Quotation of George A Romero
I thought Godzilla was a mess, the monster had no character and the humans didn't either. They forgot to make the movie that went along with all these wonderful effects.
Quotation of George A Romero
I was trying to come up with a concept about a new society, revolutionary... in political terms, that's taking over and devouring the old society.

I was very into Arthurian myth. I had always read all the White stuff, devour the stuff.

I'm not wild and crazy, there's nothing going on here, if the Steelers were playing we'd go to a football game, or otherwise watch movies.
Quotation of George A Romero
I've been in development hell. I've got about four projects out there now, all with studios. They keep paying me to rewrite and do this and that. It's literally all the sad tales you hear about development. It's awful.
Quotation of George A Romero
If I fail, the film industry writes me off as another statistic. If I succeed, they pay me a million bucks to fly out to Hollywood and fart.
Quotation of George A Romero

If one horror film hits, everyone says, 'Let's go make a horror film.' It's the genre that never dies.

If you can keep it together, you can find a way. I've had a tremendous amount of luck, despite all the frustration... I've been able to stay at home, raise a family and live fairly comfortably, not wealthy by any means.
Quotation of George A Romero
In the horror genre, it's hard to find topics that'll really be scary for everyone... to get that suspension of disbelief.
Quotation of George A Romero
It costs so damn much to distribute a film now. That's the problem. Nobody wants to take that risk. It's very, very frustrating. There's almost no such thing as a little movie.
Quotation of George A Romero
It's a lot harder to do anything that's that edgy 'cause the execs don't wanna hear about it... but we're trying to raise some European money and see if we can get a low budget together.
Quotation of George A Romero
It's basically always been the same, you know? It's just on a different level. You used to be able to at least stand a chance with a little film if it was handled well.
Quotation of George A Romero
It's gotta be scary, obviously, but I don't want to go crazy with it. I don't want to make another zombie film. I'd rather make a good action film involving zombies.
Quotation of George A Romero
It's still hard for me to get past the idea that the zombie were running around. They are supposed to be dead and all messed up.

Most of the European money now is off TV, and they're having a hard time now with anything that pushes the envelope.
Quotation of George A Romero
My first move is always to try to get a production into Pittsburgh, but I don't know if that's going to happen anymore.
Quotation of George A Romero
Pictures that test great go out and go in the toilet. And pictures that test poorly, all of a sudden they'll come out of the pack and people like them, but they don't get a chance because a studio won't really get behind it if it tests poorly. It's a mess. I mean, it's really a mess.
Quotation of George A Romero
So many execs don't get or understand the horror genre, they're used to being involved with story or plot, and when they're in a genre that they don't get or have affection for, it gets difficult.
Quotation of George A Romero
The big tickets come from a much younger audience and a different audience base. The midnight moviegoers were, like, movie fans: people who were either into films or into particular films, and into them in either a sophisticated or a kind of quirky way.
Quotation of George A Romero
The guy that made me wanna make movies... and this is off the wall-is a guy named Michael Pal, the British director.

Quotation of George A Romero
There are so many factors when you think of your own films. You think of the people you worked on it with, and somehow forget the movie. You can't forgive the movie for a long time. It takes a few years to look at it with any objectivity and forgive its flaws.
Quotation of George A Romero
There are still some wonderful child actors out there.
Quotation of George A Romero
