    R.I.P. George A. Romero, creator of the modern zombie movie

    Writer-director-producer George A. Romero, best known for films such as 1968's Night of the Living Dead & Creepshow, as well as the TV series Tales from the Darkside, has passed away at the age of 77 from lung cancer. He will be best remembered for creating the modern zombie in Night of the Living Dead and its numerous sequels, which include 1978's Dawn of the Dead, 1985's Day of the Dead, and 2005's Land of the Dead. His films have also heavily influenced other works, such as the TV series The Walking Dead and movies such as World War Z and Shaun of the Dead.

    Here is a fine obituary from the Los Angeles Times: George A. Romero, 'Night of the Living Dead' creator, dies at 77 - LA Times

    Rest in peace, Mr. Romero, you have earned it,

    David

    While I've never been overly obsessed with zombie movies, his influence on modern horror films cannot be denied. The Walking Dead would be nowhere if not for Mr. Romero. RIP, Sir.
