Night of the Living Dead
Directed by George Romero
George Romero's original zombie classic introduced viewers to a new type of terror: the walking dead, slow moving, but determined to feast on your flesh! From the first moments of its iconic opening sequence, NOTLD changed the game for horror directors, creating a genre that - like the zombies themselves - still shows no sign of slowing down. But Romero's most brilliant and controversial innovation was casting African-American actor Duane Jones as the lead, and offering a devastating - and still relevant - commentary on racism during the film's final moments.

what can you say about this absolute classic that hasn't been said before? nothing its epic fucking watch it
Anything less than five skills is a criminal offense, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to jail.
This is the classic. The gold standard.
I'm pretty impressed that this came out when it did. It was much better than I had thought. Just going through and watching all the classics to see when things started, and this one ranks high amongst them.
Flawless movie just hated the ending. Well done.
