At the Sitges Film Festival, SciFiWorld spoke to make-up effects artist Tom Savini about his career, which began in Bob Clark's Deathdream and the 1972 comedy-horror Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things. Savini mentioned that he might work with George Romero on a remake of that same movie.
I might do Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things with George Romero. These are zombies that came out of the grave, so they have to be almost skeletons. They have to be really rotted and disintegrated, so that has to be a combination of make-up and CGI, where I will put green-screen [on the actors] so you can see through them. This, I hope, will be the new generation of zombies. Because it's tough to make zombies scary. Zack Snyder made them run in his Dawn of the Dead remake to make them scary. George didn't like that. He sells bumper stickers that say "Fast Zombies Suck!"
The video interview is below and ranges through almost all of Savini's career with the exception of more recent projects like Death Island, which Savini is reportedly going to direct and The 4th Reich, where Savini will appear as a undead SS officer.
