John A. Russo sometimes credited as Jack Russo or John Russo, is an American screenwriter and film director most commonly associated with horror classic film Night of the Living Dead.
With twenty books published internationally and nineteen feature movies in worldwide distribution, John Russo has been called a “living legend.” He began by co-authoring the screenplay for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, which has become recognized as a “horror classic.” His books on the art and craft of movie making, such as HOW TO MAKE EXCITING MONEY MAKING MOVIES,  have become bibles of independent production. Quentin Tarantino and many other noted filmmakers have stated that Russo’s books helped them launch their careers.  He is also slated to direct two movies: a remake of his cult hit, MIDNIGHT, and a brand new take on the “zombie phenomenon” entitled SPAWN OF THE DEAD. His popularity among genre fans remains at a high pitch. He appears at many movie conventions each year as a featured guest, and he considers his appearance at the Orion Festival, hosted by Kirk Hammett and METALLICA, one of the highlights of his career.
