On the surface it's just a low budget zombie film. The fact that it became the defining film of its genre ,and even a social commentary at a moment of civil-rights unrest in the United States, just goes to show that great films can be made without a lavish production schedule. Sure, the acting isn’t great. Whilst Duane Jones is pretty good, it’s his character that really sets the film alight (... read more

1968: George Romero undoubtedly realizes THE classic of the film of the living dead which is also a great film on human stupidity endowed with a political (anti-political?) resonance totally subversive.
1978: ten years later, he would make THE masterpiece of the zombie film with "Dawn of the Dead".
Look. And enjoy!

**First of all, I'm not American or British, so forgive me, readers, if my English has a few mistakes.

One of the greatest horror films ever made, the original Night of the Living Dead proves that you don't need astronomical budgets to develop a solid, well-done and most important for the genre, scary story.

Initiating with a relatively simple story, the film develops... read more
View all Night of the Living Dead reviews
Description: Shot outside Pittsburgh on a shoestring budget, by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master George A. Romero, is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social comme ...

"The fact that Night of the Living Dead is the only modern zombie film that is entirely unaware of it being a zombie film makes it the best modern zombie film. It is absolutely chilling. "

" Notes: Before watching this flick the first time around, since it was such a classic, I had some rather huge expectations. Well, to be honest, I was a little bit disappointed by the whole thing. Basically, after waiting all these years, I finally saw the damned thing but even though I did like it, I wasn't exactly blown away. Sure, I have to admit that it was well done and entertaining and I definitely could see how it must have been quite frightening for the audience back in 1968. I could see"

“A good little tale of social commentary, wrapped up in a low budget black and white horror movie,shot in all places, Pittsburgh PA. But, this film opened so many doors for filmmakers to come. But,this film is the Standard for all Zombies movie's.” read more
