So Georoge Romero died.

 

Gotta be honest. I only watched  Night of the Living Dead.

 

and yet, I already miss the guy, even though his main Genre (horror) is one I'm a tiny bit hesitant to watch.

From what I was able to see of the guy from a few interviews, he seemed nice.

 

And let's end with a joke.

 

How long do you think it'll be before he'll rise up and eat our brains?

I heard. It's just sad that the only thing he's known for is the Night of the Living Dead movies. The man was a genius for creating that series but when I look at other directors like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Tom Hanks Ron Howard ... I can remember multiple different movies that they did. Unfortunately, the many sequels that came after his original classic were watered down and often turned his film series into a parody, a caricature of his original film.

George Romero was so much more than the Night of the Living Dead series.

He was also  Martin, The Crazies, Knightriders, Creepshow, Monkey Shines, Tales from the Darkside.

Creepshow is my favorite George Romero film.

Probably the most amazing thing he ever did in my eyes was work on was a segment for Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

Out of everything he ever worked on, that's the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Romero.

Weird.

And I had forgotten about Tales from the Darkside.

That show was awesome.

Tales from the Darkside actually began it's production as Creepshow: The Series and it retained many of the production staff from the Creepshow series. The title change was a last minute decision. It is for that reason that Tales from the Darkside: The Movie is considered to be the real Creepshow 3, and not that "in name only" imposter that was released in the early 2000s.
