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.

Im freaking speechless
This is Romero's greatest work. The characters are all well written and well portrayed. A movie that will always age well.
Classic! Watched it with my 2 year old!
A film that holds up to today's zombie ''standards'' for those who don't know plot development is mostly focused on the human characters and how they deal with the situation rather than it being a 90 minute gore and splat fest.
