RIP Horror Legend George A. Romero: 'Living Dead' Director Dies At 77

GEORGE Andrew Romero, who became legendary for his modern zombie movies, has died at 77 on Sunday with his family at his side, according to a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

At the time of his death, the acclaimed filmmaker was listening to his favorite score from the film The Quiet Man, and he was surrounded by his family, including his wife, Suzanne Desrocher Romero, and daughter, Tina Romero.

The creator of the classic horror films that satirised society died on Sunday after a brief battle with lung cancer, his manager said. It was recently reported that he was writing and directing George A. Romero Presents: Road of the Dead.

Romero made Night of the Living Dead on a shoestring budget of $114,000.

RIP George A. Romero, you will be missed.

Outside of the Living Dead franchise, Romero worked on other projects which his fans have rallied around. "The loss is so enormous", Guillermo del Toro tweeted.

It was inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress of the United States in 1999.

But for all his criticisms of current zombie properties, Romero was hugely supportive of the artisans working in that genre.

Romero is undoubtedly a filmmaking legend, having established himself as a prominent figure in the horror world for almost five decades.

"It's fair to say that without George A. Romero, I would not have the career I have now", Edgar wrote. I don't feel trapped.

Romero is survived by his wife, Suzanne, and his two children. "I feel this is my way of being able to express myself". He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, then began shooting shorts and commercials, including a segment of "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood".

Born in the Bronx borough of NY on February 4, 1940, Romero was interested in telling stories about monsters that are known to the people they frighten, his business partner Peter Grunwald told Reuters.
