Romero Gets A Star

Romero.jpgIt was announced today that George Romero would be getting one of those illustrious stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And all I can say is it’s about damn time. For a man who pretty much invented the modern day zombie, created so many films that gave millions of us the chills, and more than a few nightmares, it’s nice to see him get a little bit of credit for his work.

Mystery Photo 6-27

Happy Monday Everybody! Sorry to say but our last photo seemed to be quite a tough one. Honestly, I was surprised that I didn’t get any guesses of Happy Birthday to Me for this one, but it would have been incorrect.

The only two that sent in the correct answer were Hoby Abernathy and Kuba Haczek, so congrats out to them.

So this week we’re going to go with something similiar to last week. And by that I mean that at first glance you might think this is from a certain movie, but you need to look closer. But it should be a much easier one than the last few weeks. But we’ll see, won’t we?

Please remember not to post your answers here, but send them in an email to Good Luck!
