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.

This was like a long amazing Twilight Zone episode (definitely a compliment). A great movie that changed the way we saw zombies but also showed us how amazing it could be to have black characters who are not just comic relief, mystical, or sacrificed. Ben is a strong hero and leader in this film.
MY GOD.. WHY CAN'T MORE THINGS BE LIKE THIS
Simply the best!
Do I really need to explain myself?
