    The American-born filmmaker George A Romero, who created the genre-defining Living Dead movie franchise, has died at the age of 77, his family have said.

    Romero died in his sleep on Sunday after a " brief but aggressive battle" with lung cancer, his manager told Variety.

    Romero co-wrote and directed the film that started the zombie series - Night of the Living Dead - in 1968.

    It led to a number of sequels - and a slew of imitators.

    "Night of the Living Dead" was the original and best. Too many sub-zombie imitators tried to cash in on the franchise.
