Tagline: They keep coming back in a bloodthirsty lust for HUMAN FLESH!...

Plot: 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 1968 release, 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 relations were an extremely sensitive issue in the United States.

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 try endlessly to enter the house. The only way to stop the zombies is to burn them or issue a severe blow to their heads. 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

external linkPowerful film intended as camp is packed with suspense, well acted and fast paced storytelling. 4/4

external linkThe conflict among the characters still works, the gore effects still work (surprisingly), and the zombies, as comparatively primitive-looking as the makeup is, are still scary. I was unnerved from the jolting beginning to the horrifyingly ironic end. 5/5
--Jack Witzig (ColdSpot)

external linkArguably the greatest horror film ever made—and one of the greatest in any genre—"Night" is also the ultimate B-movie. Filmed on a shoestring budget, it packs more of a fearful whallop than almost anything else cranked out either before or since. It still enjoys a fiercely loyal cult following.

external linkEven though Romero lacked professional support normally found in higher budget films, he created a masterpiece that would live on far longer than most of it's Hollywood adversaries.. 5/5
