I can't deal with HG Lewis. I'm not a gorehound. I'm hoping the roughies of his that I buy tomorrow will not involve gore or cannibalism. I think Romero's films are a very different ball of wax. Lewis didn't have an epic masterpiece like DAWN OF THE DEAD in him. Romero I like and respect very much, the gore notwithstanding. Intellectually he towers over HG Lewis the way Kubrick towers over Stephen King.
