A sad day as we learn of the passing of the godfather of zombie horror at the age of 77. George A Romero’s family have said that “Romero died Sunday in his sleep following a “brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer”.

Romero was the creator of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and it’s 5 sequels as well as stamping his unique originality for horror with the likes if THE CRAZIES and MARTIN.
