George Romero's remarkably assured debut, made on a shoestring, about a group of people barricaded inside a farmhouse while an army of flesh-eating zombies roams the countryside, deflates all genre clichés. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Night of the Living Dead is a revolutionary moment in American independent cinema, a film that inspired countless of filmmakers to pick up a camera and attempt their dream with nothing more than a handful of friends, a shoestring budget, and a vision. Full Review

If [Romero's] original vision of the undead looks dulled by today's standards, his embedded political commentary on racism feels just as sharp. Full Review

Minted in chilling black and white, George A. Romero's indie classic manages to be scary as hell, funny, and political all at once...

Product Description:

George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is a low-budget, homegrown classic that had great difficulty finding a distributor at the time of its release in 1968, and has since become one of the most influential horror films of all time. (Aside from its visceral impact years before realistic gore became the fashion, the film is also important for its portrayal of a black man as the protagonist during a time when race was an extremely sensitive issue in the United States.) The plot is simple: seven people secluded in a Pennsylvania farmhouse face relentless attacks by reanimated corpses seeking to eat their flesh. The group, which includes a married couple and their daughter, a pair of young lovers, and an African-American man, try to keep their sanity as the living dead keep trying to enter the house. Radio news reports tell of the plague taking over the eastern United States, while the ever-decreasing band of survivors rapidly loses ground in the battle to both keep peace with one another and stay alive.
