Midnight Movie Phenomena
The screening of nonmainstream pictures at midnight was aimed at building a cult film audience, encouraging repeat viewing and social interaction in what was originally a countercultural setting. The movie generally recognized as igniting the theatrical midnight film movement is El Topo (1970), which opened in December 1970 at the Elgin Theatre in New York City. From 1974 the midnight screening phenomenon was spreading around the country. Midnight screenings of the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) became a national sensation in 1976, amassing a cult following all over the United States. Where the social aspect had always been a part of the midnight movie's attraction, with Rocky Horror in an exaggerated way it became the attraction. Broad social and economic shifts weakened the countercultural base and leading midnight movie venues were beginning to fold as 1977.

George Romero - Father of the Zombie Genre
George A. Romero (1940–2017) was a horror pioneer, iconic film-making legend and the father of the modern zombie horror sub-genre. He leaves his mark as a writer, director, producer and editor, in each of the past six decades, with his groundbreaking work in the horror genre. Some of Romero's movies have deeper themes, satirizing bigotry, excessive consumerism and other social-political issues. Today's hit TV series and movie franchises, like The Walking Dead (2010), Fear the Walking Dead (2015), Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Resident Evil (2002), all owe a debt to Romero's work that both influenced filmmakers and popularized the genre.
