Goodbye,George And Martin

This past weekend,we just lost two great celebrity icons…

The great George A Romero,who not only changed the face of horror cinema with his landmark classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD but he also transformed the zombie cinema subgenre into both a most lucrative successful film market and a most fearfully dangerous horror figure to be reckoned with,as well as helped modernize horror cinema(with the splattery gore of DAWN OF THE DEAD being a major influence to FRIDAY THE 13TH.’s bloodspurting violence) and make independent cinema a truly important force in filmmaking,as NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD provided the role model for aspiring filmmakers to take upon indie horror/genre cinema as a way to kick off their mainstream film careers.

Actor Martin Landau,who was best known for the television shows MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE and SPACE:1999 and later proved that heavily working in many low budgeted genre films can enable one to return to the top and win an Oscar,as Martin did(as Jack Palance also did with CITY SLICKERS) in winning a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for ED WOOD(an Oscar spot which Christopher Plummer later moved onto),which is quite a victory for an actor(or actress) in the latter years of their career.

They will both be heavily missed….
