RIP George A. Romero, you will be missed. Movie director Guillermo del Toro said, "The loss is so enormous". You're a horror guy.' I say, 'Wait a minute, I'm able to say exactly what I think, ' " Romero told The Associated Press. His influence has since spread beyond the silver screen to encompass videogames (Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising among them) to television shows (such as the hugely successful Walking Dead series, which funnily enough Romero said he wasn't a fan of). "I frequently think back to this moment of standing in my house as the moment my life truly changed and the world got smaller".

All of the movies were shot in or around Pittsburgh, where Romero had attended Carnegie-Mellon University after moving away from his hometown NY where he was born in 1940 to a Cuban father and a Lithuanian-American mother. He attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, before moving on to his career in film.
