The documentary commented on everything by John Romero Night of the Living Dead –a standout ’60s horror film which featured Duane Jones in the lead role – Tony Todd’s legendary part in Candy Mann Series.
The 2021 payment of Horror Noire will take a very different approach; a miniseries of six unique stories with many names and faces included in the original documentary, this should be a delight for hardcore horror fans.
