>I'm like my zombies, I won't stay dead.
Actual Romero quote. RIP you amazing soul!
It would be poetic if he were to return as the first zombie and kickstart the apocalypse.
Just so everyone knows, the original night of the living dead is a public domain film. The entire thing can be watched on youtube.
It's a classic, why don't ya take an hour and a half off just to watch it in his memory.
Way back in 2008, his then-new film *Diary of the Dead* had a special contest on MySpace where people could submit short zombie films for the chance to be featured on the upcoming DVD. My friend and I worked our asses off in a short amount of time and created a quick parody about zombie rights protesters demanding George A. Romero stop creating films, as they portray "mortally-challenged citizens" in a negative light.
The voting was based on people simply rating videos on MySpace, which was a heavily flawed system prone to abuse. We struggled to remain in 2nd place (behind the Angry Video Game Nerd's submission), but eventually got bumped back far at the last minute. We were in the top 10 of finalists, but didn't make it to the DVD. Nonetheless, according to MySpace, Mr. Romero personally saw our video, and years later my filmmaker friend met him at a convention.
EDIT - For those curious, [here's the video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DqyxDwY8uM
). Thanks again for the feedback!
*creator of the modern zombie movie craze
I hope his grave has an arm statue reaching up.
The reason I love zombie movies, gonna watch Night if the living dead tonight.
RIP Mr Romero
Rest In Peace.
Thank you for the scares and the fun.
Your works shall be remembered by those whom you had touched with your Art.
I wrote my thesis on Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. I basically couldn't have completed my Bachelor's without Romero. Devastated to see that he's died.
A lot of the younger generation won't truly understand the sheer impact this man made on filmmaking and the horror genre alike. George was a living legend and now he's forever immortalized,
because even he knew.
You never really die.
