On Sunday, horror movie icon George A. Romero died after a battle with lung cancer, surrounded by his family.

Now, With his creative flame extinguished, many of his friends, colleagues and admirers are paying tribute to the beloved director, and sharing the ways in which his career and legacy impacted their own lives.

Horror author Stephen King -- who worked with Romero several times over the years, including their collaboration on the cult classic Creepshow in 1982 and The Dark Half in 1993 -- took to Twitter to share a few words of love for his friend.

"Sad to hear my favorite collaborator--and good old friend--George Romero has died," King wrote. "George, there will never be another like you."

In 1968, Romero released the revolutionary horror film Night of the Living Dead. Aside from essentially launching the mega-popular zombie film genre, the black-and-white classic was notable for featuring Duane Jones, a black actor, as the main protagonist of the story.

Romero said at the time that Jones was simply the best choice and actor for the role.

Comedian and director Jordan Peele -- who recently became the first black writer-director to have a debut project break the $100 million (C$126M) mark at the box office with his horror thriller, Get Out -- paid tribute to Romero and his landmark casting choice.

"Romero started it," Peele tweeted, alongside a photo of Jones from Night of the Living Dead.

Romero 's horror films influenced everyone from horror author Stephen King to filmmakers such as James Gunn , Eli Roth, Jordan Peele and Scott Derrickson, just to name a few.

— Stephen King (@ StephenKing ) July 16, 2017. George Romero was a great director, the father of modern horror movies. He was my friend and I will miss him. — Jordan Peele (@JordanPeele) July 16, 2017.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took to Facebook to share a lengthy message thanking Romero for creating films that changed the way Gunn thought of movies and Hollywood when he was young.

"Seeing Night of the Living Dead as a child not only scared the living hell out of me, and made me forever jump at creepy children, but it was so incredibly DIY I realized movies were not something that belonged solely to the elites with multiple millions of dollars but could also be created by US, the people who simply loved them, who lived in Missouri, as I did, or Pennsylvania, as you did, or anywhere," Gunn wrote.

"I picked up an eight millimeter camera, mixed some Karo syrup with some red food dye to make blood, and began making movies - specifically, having my one brother eat my other brother onscreen, alive. I was eleven. That was the first moment of my film career, and it was spurned on because of you," he added. "Thank you, George, for being a part of my life for a long, long time, in so many different ways. Rest in Peace."
