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.

“There coming to get you Barbara” I love that scene!
It’s a classic; one of those “must-see” movies because it is the first of its kind and had such an influence in cinema, television and pop culture over 50 years later. This said, remember it is indeed old and women were portrayed in a different manner at the time; frantic, hysterical, helpless, useless. It is a product of its era and try to appreciate how much this concept has changed. But yeah they’re annoying.
Don't let the movie's age or the fact that it's in black and white stop you from watching this great classic!
Honestly one of my favorites. I always come back to it for some inspiration. The zoom in on the stairs still gets me even after seeing it a hundred times.
Saw this at 3 am in my car and I had to go in my house because it’s scared the shhhhh outta me
