George Romero, who launched the zombie film genre with his 1968 "Night of the Living Dead," died on Sunday, Variety has confirmed. He was 77.

The director died in his sleep following a battle with lung cancer, according to a statement from his manager Chris Roe.

"Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero passed away on Sunday July 16, listening to the score of "The Quiet Man," one of his all-time favorite films, with his wife, Suzanne Desrocher Romero, and daughter, Tina Romero at his side," wrote Roe. "He died peacefully in his sleep, following a brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer, and leaves behind a loving family, many friends, and a filmmaking legacy that has endured, and will continue to endure, the test of time."

It was a rough weekend for losing film legends. My favourite of his "Dead" films is DAWN OF THE DEAD. Its commentary on our consumerism culture is as relevant today as it was in 1978.

Maybe even more so.

Dawn of the Dead was a good movie, for me though, it was Night of the Living Dead that really grabbed me. The way its presented, its music and filming style look fantastic in the dark.

Rest in Peace, George!
