George A. Romero dies, 77

The American-born filmmaker George A Romero, who created the genre-defining Living Dead movie franchise, has died at the age of 77, his family have said.

Romero died in his sleep on Sunday after a " brief but aggressive battle" with lung cancer, his manager told Variety.

Romero co-wrote and directed the film that started the zombie series - Night of the Living Dead - in 1968.

It led to a number of sequels - and a slew of imitators.
He was the father of the modern zombie. He started out as a small-time, indie director, and ended up having a massive and lasting impact on horror fiction.

R.I.P. :(

Nobody better make no stupid 'durr hurr hurr he's dead and is thus going to become a zombler' jokes. I have revoked that privilege. George Romero deserves better, damn it.
