“The Walking Dead” Gave Homage to ‘Dawn of the Dead’ In Last Night’s Finale; Bub Also Made a Cameo!



The Walking Dead

Since its inaugural episode, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has been tipping its hat to George A. Romero’s zombie films.

Just last week they dropped a ‘Bub’ bomb on us, giving homage to Romero’s Day of the Dead. Below you’ll see two screen grabs of the iconic hero zombie from the 1985 sequel to Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead.

Speaking of Dawn of the Dead, last night’s “The Walking Dead” gave serious homage to Romero’s 1978 classic by slamming a machete into the head of one of the undead.

Reddit user Effectivecatch shared two grabs for comparison (above and below).

What have been your favorite throw-backs to the father of the zombie film?
