Romero passed away at the age of 77 on Sunday according to The LA Times.

US filmmaker George A. Romero, whose 1968 cult classic Night of the Living Dead spawned the zombie movie genre, died on Sunday aged 77, according to his manager.

While Romero directed numerous features throughout the years, he is best known for his work in the zombie genre, which included numerous films that followed "Night of the Living Dead".

Per a statement from Romero's manager Chris Roe given to Variety, Romero died listening to the score to the 1952 film "The Quiet Man".

He exec produced and updated his own screenplay for Tom Savini's 1990 remake of "Night of the Living Dead". His wife Suzanne Desrocher Romero and his daughter Tina were at his side.

Sad to hear my favorite collaborator-and good old friend-George Romero has died.

Born in the Bronx borough of NY on February 4, 1940, Romero was interested in telling stories about monsters that are known to the people they frighten, his business partner Peter Grunwald told Reuters. It's sequel, Dawn of the Dead (1978) was a cutting look at consumerism, and is largely the model for nearly all zombie films that followed. He got his start in the entertainment business by filming commercials and shorts, including a segment on Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Later on, he created "Land of the Dead" in 2005, "Diary of the Dead" in 2007, and, in 2009, "George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead".

Romero's zombie movies set the rules imitators lived by: Zombies move slowly, lust for human flesh and can only be killed when shot in the head.

Romero spent most of his life in Pittsburgh, which now hosts an annual Zombie Fest and is sometimes called the "Zombie Capital of the World", the Hollywood Reporter notes.

Romero had a prolific writing and directing career that wasn't limited to zombies, though he remained firmly planted in the horror genre.
