Remembering George A. Romero by Sean Decker

At some point in the early 80’s I discovered my father’s “off limits” drawer of VHS titles, which contained George Romero’s Day of the Dead.

This, like Carpenter’s Halloween and Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, among others, set the direction of my career path.

In the ensuing years I had the honor of befriending Romero and interacting with him occasionally during the remainder of his career. I was consistently amazed that someone so kind and jovial was responsible for creating such insightful, dark, and socially intellectual horror.

While the term “Master of Horror” is bandied about often and sometimes haphazardly, George was truly that, and his work will live on throughout the ages.

Thank you, Mr. Romero. You will be missed.
