  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

George A Romero, one of the great directors of the horror genre, has left us at age 77. Not many people can say they'd created a genre, but the modern zombie would not be as it is without Night of the Living Dead. He was working on his next film in the series when he died, an artist to the very end.
I don't usually get emotional over celebrity deaths, but I'm writing this in tears. The man's work meant so much to me.
Thank you, George.

Damn.  I guess no more "of the dead" movies.  I really liked the way he snuck in social commentary into all of his films.  It's a shame that horror directors always have some sort of stigma in Hollywood, because this guy should have a stack of Oscars by now.  The original "Dead" trilogy in particular is right up there with Star Wars and Lord of the Rings in regards of being one of the best, most influential, set of films of all time.

Actor John Heard has passed. Probably from over working.  He was good in BSG.  RIP

Director Tobe Hooper, (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist (even though it was really Spielberg), Salems' Lot, Funhouse) has passed away at age 74 (fitting, considering '74 is when Chain Saw came out).

Craven, Romero, Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface), Angus Scrimm (Phantasm's Tall Man), now Hooper.....

As a horror fan, all these deaths SUCK lately.

RIP.

I heard his girlfriend smashed his face in, so it could be related or not.

Richard Anderson passed away.  Some of oldies will remember his as Oscar Goldman of the Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman.

Six million is pretty cheap to what it costs today for a bionic arm.

Kind of explains why modern horror movies suck now.  The genre is literally dying off.

Former wrestler, manager, and commentator Bobby "The Brain" Heenan has passed away at age 73. TampaBay.com has run the obituary for Bobby Heenan and it notes that Heenan died from organ failures that were brought on by his battle with cancer.

The man had the gift of gab, and was loved by everyone he worked with. I always enjoyed his work with Gorilla Monsoon.

Now they're saying he isn't dead. It's official now. My friend just saw him live a few months back and really enjoyed the show. 66 is too young to go.

John Dunsworth, aka Jim Lahey of "Trailer Park Boys" and "Haven," has passed away at age 71. He always seemed like a pretty nice guy IRL.
