The originator and mastermind behind the modern zombie film, George A. Romero has passed away at age 77.
The world has lost a visionary film maker, a man who through his storytelling fought stereotypes and racism with elegance and insight. A man who sparked an entire genre, without George, there would be no Walking Dead.
Unlike his great film creations however, may George rest peacefully forever more.
George A. Romero
February 4, 1940 – July 16, 2017
