George A Romero was/is my favorite horror/zombie director. My brother and I grew up watching the oriignal Dawn Of The Dead from 1978 and its still a classic film today. George's first film "Night Of The Living Dead" came out in 1968 with a remake in 1990. He was the one who directed pretty much all the zombie movies that you could think of and he made zombies where they are and gave them that slow moving, shoot them in the head type personality.
George worked along side makeup artist Tom Savini for over a half a century and they became the zombie team and I know that I'm not the only one who is going to miss him. He was known as the godfather of zombies. He interduced us to a whole new genre of horror and who knows where horror would be if George didn't tell us his story of the undead.
Rest In Peace, George, you'll be missed.
