Thank you George Romero

Off the cuff special thanks and tribute to George Romero, a truly iconic and influential filmmaker, and father of the modern zombie genre. Thanks for all you did, George. Not many people can create an entire genre of film, but you did. Without you, there is no Walking Dead, no Shaun of the Dead, no Zombieland, Zombi 2, or any other flesh eating zombie film in existence. #romero
