    RIP George Romero

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/...-77/483118001/

    But is he dead? Someone may need to cut off his head to be sure.

    Major bummer.

    I seen 'em all.

    "Day of the Dead" from 1985 was under rated

    Anyone remember "The Crazies"?

    Totally bummed. Saw him last year at an Indianapolis horror convention. He was there with the four stars of "Dawn of the Dead." Loved his other movies like "Martin," "The Crazies," "Creepshow" and of course "Night of the Living Dead."

    RIP.

    Yes, as I noted above. Romero was kind of ahead of his time in that he used a black hero for both "The Crazies" and "Night of the Living Dead."

    The scene that stuck with me was the crazies crossing a field creating mayhem and there was one undead lady sweeping the field with a broom.

    Brilliant touch to show the madness going on

    He'll be missed. A master at putting real life themes into horror movies.
