George Romero, director of the classic “Night of the Living Dead” has died. He was 77. Romero directed other horror films. He turned zombie movies into social commentaries and saw his flesh-devouring undead spawn countless imitators, remakes and homages.
His family said in a statement provided by his manager Chris Roe, that Romero died Sunday following a battle with lung cancer. Romero’s family said he died while listening to the score of “The Quiet Man,” one of his favorite films, with his wife, Suzanne Desrocher, and daughter, Tina Romero, by this side.
Romero is credited with reinventing the movie zombie with his directorial debut, the 1968 cult classic, “Night of the Living Dead.”
