As I sat there playing Diablo III the wife came in looking sad and told me George Romero has passed.
I stopped to look at the screen and the fact I am playing a necromancer controlling a undead horde was not wasted on me.
One little film when I was a lad, Night of the Living Dead, warped my mind. It pulled me in and I've been a fan of the undead and horror ever since.
Throw in Creep Show (The Crate still bothers me), The Crazies, Dawn, Day and Land of the Dead too. Then look to all the people in art, film media, pop culture and video games he influenced too.
Big loss. Sad day.
