Bill Hinzman, 1936-2012

You might not know his name, but you probably know his face. Bill Hinzman was the first zombie who lumbered across the screen in George Romero’s original Night of the Living Dead, and thus, was also the first modern movie zombie in cinematic history. He passed away yesterday at the age of 75, and I can only hope he’ll soon shamble out of his grave to snack on a few brains. I feel like that’s what Bill would’ve wanted. (Via Bloody-Disgusting)
