We lost two horror heroes this weekend — Martin Landau on Saturday, and George A. Romero on Sunday.

Landau won an Oscar for playing horror legend Bela Lugosi in “Ed Wood,” and was nominated two other times, for “Tucker: The Man and His Dream” and “Crimes and Misdemeanors.” He died July 15 from “unexpected complications” after a brief stay at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, his rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. He is survived by daughters Susan Landau Finch and Juliet Landau (aka Drusilla on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel”).
