Absolutely devastated to hear of the passing of George Romero. I had the pleasure of meeting him in 2007, he came across very warm, grateful and genuinely interested in what I had to say even though he had probably heard it all before. They just don't make trailblazers like this anymore he made an entire horror subgenre by creating the modern zombie film. While the original Dead trilogy will always be viewed as his piece de resistance Creepshow, Martin, the Crazies and others are staples of counter culture film making. He showed us that a good story, talent, ambition and integrity will always trump the big-budget cookie cutter bs. I will always cherish the legacy he left behind. Thank you George.
