Night of the Living Dead an absolute game-changer and one of my favourite films.

Never seen it or indeed any of his work as it's not really my thing but fully cognisant of his place in cinema so a sad loss.

Still stands up as one of the best zombie films. Black man in a lead role in the 1960s!, properly scary, really unsettling.

Yeah, in many ways this was a forward thinking and political movie.

RIP, Sir... and thank you for all your movies, my favourite genre Zombies in horror, without you we wouldnt have Z Nation, or The Walking Dead... your films give us all hope of a better world, after the Zombie Plague!
