Martin Landau and George Romero pass away #holycrap
Wow, Martin Landau and George Romero pass away over the weekend. I don’t think I’ll ever understand why Landau never received that top billing, but I guess if you have to be a character actor, there’s nobody better than Martin Landau. The guy is amazing and he had more than one comeback as I recall, on the X-Files, in great movies like Ed Wood and Tucker: A Man and his Dream.
George Romero was an amazing director and he made some of my favorite horror movies. I was waiting for that final masterpiece and it’s sad we’ll never get it. The modern zombie is about as popular a thing as it gets, and that’s all thanks to George Romero. I mean, pretty much. In America, at least. When people think horror pioneer, they think of this guy.
