The director known for the cult horror classic "Night of the Living Dead" died after battling lung cancer.
Horror movie legend George Romero has died. He was 77 years old.
Romero's family said the director died Sunday. He'd been battling lung cancer.
Romero was probably best known for writing and directing the 1968 film "Night of the Living Dead." It became a cult horror classic and inspired many other zombie movies.
Romero directed most of the films in the "Dead" series, including 1978's "Dawn of the Dead" and 1985's "Day of the Dead."
He was also the man behind non-zombie horror movies like "The Crazies" and "Creepshow."
Romero branched out beyond filmmaking later in his career and wrote a series of comic books for Marvel.
Romero is survived by his wife and three children.
