George Romero was a great director, the father of modern horror movies. He made so many of my favorite films. I loved Dawn of the Dead, Knightriders, Day of the Dead, The Dark Half and Land of the Dead.
He was my friend and I will miss him. Rest in peace, George.

A kind man; a gentle man; a master and the creator of the modern zombie movie to whom all modern horror owes its genesis… rest in peace George Romero.
