Despite working outside the Hollywood system for almost his entire career, Romero is nonetheless responsible for some of the most influential horror movies of all time. His original zombie trilogy Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of The Dead elevated the zombie from the world of Haitian voodoo and horror films set during the colonial era and turned them into the scariest damn flesh-eaters to grace the silver screen in modern years. Without Romero, we would not have The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, or any of the recent examples of zombie movies, comics, or video games that are tapping into the resurging zombie-mania felt among horror, pop-culture, and media fans.
