Today we mourn the loss of one of our genre’s iconic filmmakers – George A. Romero, who passed away late yesterday at the age of 77 after a brief, but aggressive battle with lung cancer.
Romero, best known for his zombie series of movies including Night of the Living Dead (1968), Dawn of the Dead (1978), Day of the Dead (1985), Land of the Dead (2005) and Diary of the Dead (2017) had over 30 credits in his illustrious career.
Noted horror author Stephen King, a good friend of Romero’s, tweeted “Sad to hear my favorite collaborator – and good old friend – George Romero has died. There will never be another like you.”
R.I.P. Mr. Romero.
