    George A Romero, director of horror classic Night of the Living Dead, has died. He was 77.

    In a statement to the Los Angeles Times, Romero’s producing partner Peter Grunwald said the director died in his sleep after a “brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer”.

    Night of the Living Dead, a zombie film which combined horror and social satire, which Romero co-wrote with John Russo, was released in 1968 and became a cult classic. It spawned a series: Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead. The last was released in 2009.

    6. A loss to zombie fiction writers every where.

    Even though he didn’t care for the way zombies were portrayed, we still owe a debt to him for making zombies cool. Ish. :P

    7. One of the most terrifying films, Night of the Living Dead, which

    I saw as a child – it wasn’t even a highly hyped film like Exorcist or The Omen, and I knew nothing about it, except by chance one night (Halloween season) they showed it on Creature Features, I think, and it gave me nightmares!  LOL  I can laugh about it now, but it still creeps me out when I think back to the cemetery scene in the beginning.  RIP, for real.
