Romero's films will live on forever to influence and inspire future generations of filmmakers, especially 1968's Night of the Living Dead, which invented the modern-day zombie as we know it. Late last year, The Museum of Modern Art and The Film Foundation premiered their 4K restoration of Night of the Living Dead (a restoration that was supervised by Romero himself), and this fall it will begin its screening tour in the Us, giving fans the chance to pay tribute to one of the most unique voices in independent filmmaking.
