HARUO NAKAJIMA 1929-2017

Heartbreaking news for Godzilla fans all over the world as original Godzilla suitmation actor Haruo Nakajima has passed away at age 88! Najaima played the world’s most famous radioactive behemoth from the original Gojira in 1954 up to and including Godzilla vs Gigan in 1972. Nakajima also worked with Akira Kurosawa playing roles in Seven Samurai and Hidden Fortress.

As a huge Godzilla fan myself, it was an honor and a dream come true when I met him at the Chiller Theater convention in 1994 and he signed my Gojira fortieth anniversary Japanese laser disc box set. It is a memory I’ll never forget and an heirloom I will always cherish!-MZNJ

GEORGE ANDREW ROMERO 1940-2017

Tragic and heartbreaking news as legendary horror director George A. Romero has lost his battle with lung cancer and passed away today at age 77. Romero may not have invented zombies, but his take on them, in the classic Night of the Living Dead, turned them into their own genre and his portrayal of them is imitated and still inspires to this very day. He made a few studio films, but remained an independent filmmaker for most of his life and career. He is immortalized in his work and will always be celebrated as one of the greatest horror film directors of all time! Farewell and RIP George!
