George Romero was one of the biggest names in film - and zombies. In 1968, George Romero and his friends John Russo and Russel Streiner attempted to make a horror film independently. The film underwent two revisions, the final being written mainly by Romero in three days, and became about reanimated human corpses that consumed living flesh. The film was incredibly successful for an independent film, and even had the honor of being one of the biggest sources of controversy for its generation, thanks to the violent aspects of the movie. It sparked a franchise that has given Romero the title of being the Grandfather of Zombies. This movie is none other than Dawn of the Dead. This camera, which was used to film the production, absorbed the grisly scenes and terror that the first zombie movie created.

The movie “The Black Cauldron” was what inspired Disney to create this film.


Whatever living thing is captured on film by the camera is 'infected' with the zombie disease from the movie, which shows symptoms by making the subject flicker to a grainy black and white tone. When the person is completely black and white, the transformation is complete.
