Will 1 million people watch "Night of the Living Dead"?

Saturday, Feb. 4, is a very special day.  It's George A. Romero's birthday. You know him. He's the guy that birthed all the zombie stuff you're seeing these days. If he'd never made "Night of the Living Dead" in 1968 the world would be a very different place.

I don't want to live in that world.

To honor the man on his 72nd birthday, a Facebook page asking people join to watch the father of zombie films was started.

The question is, will 1 million people watch "Night of the Living Dead" tomorrow? The site hopes to get that many people watching it at the same time. I'd settle for that many people watching it on the same day.

So if you haven't watched "Night of the Living Dead" recently, this is a good time. It's a great day to get together with friends, throw a party, cheer for some good guys and bad guys and see which team wins. (Super Bowl or NOTLD? Go Patriots!) Even better, find some folks who maybe have never seen "Night of the Living Dead" and show them what they've been missing. After that, you can watch some other Romero films. I suggest "Dawn of the Dead" and "Martin."

Head over to the Facebook page and sign on. Then let Warning Signs know if you watched the movie or not.

And happy birthday, Mr. Romero!
