Night of the Living Dead "Cemetery Zombie" (done)

Post by Zombie Pumpkins! » Mon Feb 06, 2012 5:15 pm

I couldn't find a post requesting this ghoul in particular, but I know there's always a clamor for more zombie patterns. And what better zombie than the first one seen in 1968's Night of the Living Dead? A zombie who basically paved the way for our modern vision of the Romero-zombie.

I had this pattern in the works for a while, but now seemed like a good time to get it done and push it out. The actor Bill Hinzman passed away on February 5th at the age of 75, after a battle with cancer. But like any good zombie, he'll live on forever in film history.

Very nice. Do not ever remember watching the movie yet, but will attempt to get my hands on a copy. In Honor of Bill.

My first proper introduction to Romero was "Night". I have both the colour and the black and white version, actually two black and whites. Definately best in the latter. I could picture at least a dozen Georges zombies in ZP form. Cemetery Zombie is a terrific start to possibly the last halloween ever and a touching tribute to a man that has probably in some small way inspired a generation. :D
