This weekend saw the passing of two Hollywood icons – actor Martin Landau and filmmaker George A. Romero, who revolutionized the horror/zombie genre thanks to his landmark work on 1968’s Night of the Living Dead and its various sequels.

Romero passed away at the age of 77 after an “aggressive battle with lung cancer,” it was announced on Sunday morning. News of his death prompted an outpouring of condolences and tributes from the entertainment realm, as he quite obviously was a strong influence on legions of filmmakers in his wake.

May he rest in peace.
