Tom “The Godfather of Gore” Savini, the legendary special make-up effects expert best known for his work on such films as the original Friday the 13th, Dawn of the Dead, and Creepshow, has been confirmed as a guest in this year’s Fan Expo Vancouver (April 20–21, 2013, Vancouver, BC, Canada).

    • Savini is also in Romero’s non-zombie movie Knightriders. That is a movie that is often forgotten by everyone except the hardcore Romero fans. It is also a movie that will probably not warrant a remake.

      • Definitely one of the more memorable “that guy!” character actors. I honestly had no idea he was such a respected leader and teacher in the field of special make-up effects until coming across his IMDb entry several months ago.
