It is a sad, sad duty to have to report the death of Bill Hinzman whom you will know as Graveyard Zombie, one of the genres most iconic zombies, in the original Night of the Living Dead. He passed away Feb. 5th after a battle with cancer. He was 75. Bill continued to work with Romero on such movies as There’s Always Vanilla, Season of the Witch and The Crazies and also tried his hand at directing with Flesh Eater. Bill was also a fixture on the convention circuit where he always had a smile, handshake and a story for his fans. I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Hinzman several years ago and it is something that I will always remember. RIP Mr.Hinzman, you will be missed…
