George A. Romero, Creator of the Modern Zombie Genre, Dies at 77
George A. Romero, the legendary filmmaker behind such classic zombie films Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead has sadly passed away on Sunday from complications from lung cancer. Romero was 77. Viewed by many as the creator of the modern zombie genre, Romero’s Night of the Living Dead— which was made on a budget of $114,00 and went on to gross $30 million — was the first film to introduce the concept of zombies as undead, human-eating cannibals, and helped introduce the concept of a “splatter film.”
