Night of the Lambing Dead?

Deadly Movies Cameos | George A Romero in ‘Silence of the Lambs’ (1991)

Here’s an awesome cameo that’s past me by for the past 20 years or so. George A Romero, smiley godfather of the zombie movie, is in 1991’s horror masterpiece ‘The Silence of the Lambs‘.

Location: Courthouse Cell scene. Clarice visits Dr Lector in his special Tennessee cell (you know, the big bird cage cell). When she rushes back to the enclosure to grab a case file from Lector (where he does that creepy finger stroke thing) a gaggle of cops and security guards rush over to escort Clarice away. Well fellow horror fans, one said guard is none other than George Romero who, if you keep an eye on him in the background, is doing some sterling fake talking into a walkie-talkie acting. So there you have it, the moment Romero met Lector. Oh and it’s also hilarious to see the disapproving-grandpa face that Romero shoots Lector as he’s pulling Clarice away. Cinema genius.

    Wow, that sure is… random. Pretty cool too.

    Disapproving grandpa/Tim from The Office impression?
