George Romero

We’ve just lost George Romero, a kind, gentle man and a creative genius who single-handedly invented the zombie genre in Western pop culture, one of the most significant, prominent and compelling genres that culture has ever known. I knew that news of his death was coming and yet I can’t believe it. I should be going to bed and instead I am at my desk, sobbing and texting people I haven’t spoken to for years because he is irreplaceable.

He had a spectacular career that spanned my entire lifetime. What will we do without him? I have no answers. George. We will miss you so much.
