RIP George A. Romero
His legacy of zombie horror will live on forever. Without him there would have been no “Walking Dead,” “28 Days Later,” or the zombie sub-genre of horror as we know it today. A mad genius ahead of his time, he will be missed by all horror fans and respected for his extraordinary and inventive contributions to the genre.

RIP Martin Landau 🙁
RIP Martin Landau
I saw him a couple months ago in North by Northwest when it was re-released to theaters. As fantastic as he was in Ed Wood, he was so creepy and menacing in that Hitchcock classic, I would personally call that my favorite performance of his. He was also excellent in Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors, and turned in solid work in 9, in my opinion one of the most underrated animated films of the 2000s.

“Ed Wood” is one of the all-time best supporting actor Oscar winners. RIP Martin Landau. 🙁
Landau may have won the Oscar for Ed Wood but it’s his sublime performance in Crimes and Misdemeanors that’s absolutely essential viewing for all lovers of cinema. Rest in peace.
