Famed director and Carnegie Mellon University alumnus George Romero is considered the godfather of the zombie genre. His 1968 movie, "Night of the Living Dead," has been included in the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry for its social commentary. Romero, who attended classes in the 1960s and received his degree in 1983, directed more than a dozen films. His 1982 film "Creepshow" was partially filmed at CMU.
