ZombieBloodFights.com offers condolences to the families of two icons from the legendary Romero movie that is the heart of the current zombie craze, Night of the Living Dead.
ZBF.com would like to share the following from the Facebook page of ZombiesEatPeople.com.
While we celebrated, the birthday of a director of one of our most celebrated
and inspiring movies of our genre, two families were mourning a loss.
Over the weekend actor, Bill Hinzman passed away. Although he wasn’t
the first zombie we ever saw, he was Romero’s first zombie. And for
that he will always be legendary. He will be remembered as the car-chasing
ghoul that terrorized Barbara. As if this wasn’t enough, the zombie
community took another blow with the passing of Josephine Streiner.
Ms. Streiner was a ghoul extra and the car that Barbara crashed
in the cemetery, belonged to her. Her family has championed the
Save the Evans City Cemetery Chapel campaign. On behalf of Ms. Streiner,
the family asks that a donation be made to:
