I was about to make a thread about this, and it was going to be a lot better than this one, too. Also, you should've posted it in Gen Chat like I was, the guy's a legend, not a petty TV actor. Well done, whoever moved it.

This is awful, I love his movies. :/ If it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't have a zombie fetish. He also inspired me to write a short story about zombies, it was terrible though, lol. I wonder how long it'll take for someone to make a short film about him coming back as a zombie.

R.I.P George. My favourite movies are the original Night Of The Living Dead and Dawn Of The Dead. Absolute classics.

There goes our beloved God of Zombies! RIP, maybe just maybe he will come back with his army of undead.

Holly...no...no...oh man...

He was the god of zombie gore man...i swear, 2016 being a bad year for admirable celeb deaths is almost at the point of becoming overrated.

 

A true shame  :/

Gotta go watch the "of the Dead" trilogy now. I say trilogy because land is not great. I don't mind it. But it's no Dawn or Day.

Absolutely gutted about this, he was an absolutely phenomenal visionary and pioneer. Nobody could do it better. Also, it's sobering to me because my grandfather is the spitting image of him and is at least ten years older. It's making me think of his mortality and soon I'll be without two people who look like George Romero.

Sorry lol, was too bummed to expand on my OP. A shame we lost him, even though zombie movies have certain reputation these days, his movies were fairly smart, he always put his own twist on them, touching important subjects between all the gore and horror. Night of the Living Dead is just a masterpiece on that regard.

Damn, i really wanted to see Road of the Dead, RIP.

RIP to a legend, without him he would not have so many of the zombie movies we have today!

naturally the first thought when making a RIP thread is to make it really good and not to pay respects

RIP

 

I liked Land of the dead

 

When I was a kid the few scenes from Night of the living dead I saw left me a traumatism and I couldn't sleep during some nights.

When I heard that Romero died, I hoped they meant the Daikatana one. But we lost the good one, alas.

Don't be a dick. John Romero's is one of the founding fathers of FPS genre. It will be a sad day for gamers when he dies.

 

I'll be honest. I thought that George Romero died years ago. I don't know why. RIP though. He was a visionary artist with a very unique mind.

I have first hand accounts from people who have actually had to work with him to go by. And I'm not saying I'd be happy he dies. I have no reason to wish that upon him. But out of the two Romeros, he'd be the one I'd miss by far the less.

Must be honest here...i only know his actual name from "call of the dead" zombie map in black ops, but having it looked up after this guy did invent the modern "infected" zombie and is pretty much responsible for modern zombie culture and related "infected" and such.
