Taken Too Early - Bill Hinzman - (October 24, 1936 - February 5, 2012)

Earlier this evening, reports starting come in that Bill Hinzman has passed away at the age of 75. It is said that he died after losing his battle with cancer. Fans of Night of the Living Dead know Bill as the cemetery zombie in the landmark zombie film. Bill also appeared in George Romero’s The Crazies and Season of the Witch, among other horror films. In the late 80′s Bill Hinzman tried directed two of his own horror movies: The Majorettes and Flesh Eaters. Over the years, Bill Hinzman has appeared at numerous horror conventions and film festivals. Last year my daughter Jillian and I had the chance to meet Bill at the Saturday Nightmares Convention in New Jersey and I was blown away by him, not to mention it was a moment that Jillian will never forget. He is a horror movie icon that will be missed by generations of horror fans.
