It is very sad to hear that he has passed. I hope someone takes up the mantle and produces zombie movie quality like his eventually. I wasn't too sure about the Deathrace with zombies idea I heard he was working on before passing but every zombie movie he has made was the best I've seen. His work always had something no other zombie genre could reproduce, even The Walking Dead doesn't give me the same feelings his movies gave. I still love going to bed to Diary of the Dead.

This world truly lost a great man. I will miss you George A. Romero and will treasure the gifts you gave the world during your life.

Well, he'll be back to try to eat our brains.
