Rest In Peace: George A. Romero

One of the few horror icons I actually met in person.  What a legacy he leaves behind.
The weird tag line of Dawn of the Dead was one of the earliest memories I have of something truly scaring me..."When there's no more room in HELL, the dead will walk the EARTH."  Some kids were talking about that in grade school when the film came out, and it really REALLY got under my skin.

Just a giant in his profession and such an incredibly kind and gracious individual. Was talking to Russ Streiner, who I've gotten to know a bit, at a local event and there behind him was Romero. I've rarely felt completely star struck, but I felt numb and frozen for a moment there. Very nice though, even laughed over me getting the raw materials :) for my haunt from "Barbara's cemetery".
