University gets horror filmmaker George Romero's archives

PITTSBURGH -- The University of Pittsburgh is getting a spooky addition: the archives of late iconic horror filmmaker George A. Romero.

Romero's horror flicks date back to the 1968 film "Night of the Living Dead," and many consider him the godfather of zombie cinema.

The university announced the acquisition this week.

The archives will be available to scholars, students and filmmakers and include the original annotated "Night of the Living Dead" script and a foam latex zombie head.

University officials say the collection will be used to build an international resource for the study of horror and science fiction.
