George Romero 1940-2017


The Father of the modern zombie, and one of the most inspirational figures in the history of horror, has passed at the age of 77, after a battle with lung cancer. George Romero is best remembered as the creator of the Night of the Living Dead and its litany of sequels, remaining active up until his death on several projects.

Romero is survived by his wife and three children, and our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.
