In Memoriam: George Romero

Yesterday we lost a beloved horror icon. Romero didn’t just make zombie movies, he defined one of the largest and most successful sub-genres. He changed the world through his masterpieces and left behind an incredible legacy.

Romero

I’ve seen so many people today discussing his movies and talking about how they were inspired by him. It’s incredible to me how he was able to impact so many people, so many creators.

There isn’t a lot that I can say about him or his work that isn’t already being talked about by horror fans everywhere, but I would like to at least acknowledge that I too have been deeply inspired by this man.

He will always be one of my personal heroes, a legend, and above all, he will be remembered.
