Christian and Ian know that the masters can still make terrible movies.

We continue our Overkill series in which we will be discussing the movies in George Romero's "Dead" franchise. During each episode we will answer the question- are we still in on this franchise or is it overkill? We discuss Romero's final film shortly after hearing the news of his passing. We do try to discuss the movie, but mostly grapple with Romero's place in American horror cinema and what his legacy is. We discuss some weird choices in this movie regarding Irish people and masturbation, but land on the idea that perhaps Romero's filmography is special because of its flaws rather than in spite of those flaws.

We'd love to hear your thoughts, questions, or any requests you have. You can contact us at: ItsOnlyFeedback@gmail.com and on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Letterboxd.
