Yep.

Damn it. Still. 77 is a decent run... thanks for everything, Mister Romero.

I'm sorry he is gone. His vision inspired so many elements of geek and popular culture, it's impossible to fully describe the impact he's had - though zombie stuff isn't my favorite genre, it's influence has been undeniable across many of my favorites. I pray for peace for all those who loved him.

George Romero, creator of Night of the Living Dead and father of the modern zombie movie, died today at 77. The man was a legend and a genius. If there's one thing I respect about him more than any other though, it was that, in 1968, he chose to cast Duane Jones as the male lead of his first and most iconic film. Jones was a black man, and in 1968 black men simply were not allowed to be lead actors. Romero had incredible courage to do what he did, and Jones paved the way for black actors of future generations to finally get their chance to shine.

Plus, Night of the Living Dead was a damn good movie. Thanks for all the memories Mr. Romero. I can honestly say I'm pretty emotional about this. Sigh.

Yes, very sad. Rest in peace, George.

Night of the living Dead is a masterpiece in all kinds of ways.

Heh. If it were anyone else I'd call that disrespectful, but... yeah man, spot on. I just know the first time I saw Night, I fell in love. And then I played the Resident Evil games. Zombies became a feature of my young psyche in a big way. I would have dreams/nightmares about them on a weekly basis, and still do pretty frequently. I usually have a shotgun though, so that helps.

May he rest peacefully.

Really George. Don't come back as a zombie. But if you do, I look forward to the apocalypse you start.

One of the most important and influential directors of all time. Fact that zombies as a genre even exist in their current format is thanks to him. All the movies, TV shows, even comics and video games- and of course board games and role-playing games- featuring modern iteration of zombies owes that to mr. Romero.

Rest in peace.
