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.

waited a long time to see this, not disappointed
Come on! Classic!!
I can watch this over and over. Wish Shudder would put Dawn of the Dead 1978 on. That film is really hard to find.
Put the fear of cemeteries in me, when I was just a kid. Watched it one night on tv. A true classic.
I’ve watched this so many times throughout my life, that I know it word for word. You can’t get more Classic Horror than this! I even loved the remakes. This movie created an entire genre that has a huge cult following. If you haven’t watched this GEM grab some popcorn and get ready for something timeless and well done. NOTHING else can give you the vibe this movie does Horror Fans.
