    Probably because Roth directed him in the House with a Clock in it's Walls.

    Why are you surprised? Of course it's going to be mainstream. It's on AMC.

    Bravo's 100 scariest movie moments had clips from Fulci, Argento and Bava films. I was thinking there might be a chance.

    You'll be pleased to know that Roth does indeed mention NIGHTMARE CITY when they're discussing fast zombies, and there's a brief clip. I also spotted two clips from HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD and a couple from the French film THE HORDE.

    Well that's something.

    I think the commercial for this series does highlight "The Classics".

    I don't remember seeing any clips from N.City or Hell of the Living Dead but, I think, I kinda tuned out when they started discussing 28 Days Later as I didn't care for the film (watching it right now on AMC). It's okay when it's not moving at hyper-speed. I want to see Hell... again. May have to pick up that dbl-feature bd soon.

    That's the exact segment where the clip for NIGHTMARE CITY was shown. I found it a bit odd (and clumsy) that they failed to mention that RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD also featured running zombies, especially considering that the film was discussed elsewhere in the episode.
