Default George A. Romero, 'Night of the Living Dead' creator, dies at 77

George A. Romero, father of the modern movie zombie and creator of the groundbreaking “Night of the Living Dead” franchise, has died at 77, his family said.

Romero died Sunday in his sleep following a “brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer,” according to a statement to The Times provided by his longtime producing partner, Peter Grunwald. Romero died while listening to the score of one his favorite films, 1952’s “The Quiet Man,” with his wife, Suzanne Desrocher Romero, and daughter, Tina Romero, at his side, the family said.

Son of a biscuit!!!

He was the Mack daddy of modern horror. I am generally not a big fan of most horror films but would go out of my way to watch George and his stories. He is why we have 'The Walking Dead' and others like that.

Rest in peace, Mr Romero.

On a personal level this one hurts me. Romero invented a genre. He is the king. 28 Days Later, WWZ, Walking Dead, Zombieland, REC...spanish version only, I am Legend, Shawn, etc. don't exist.

RIP Romero...until...it begins...
