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.

I still like the 90s remake better though.
Wanted to see it for a while now and it's great.
Classic! Very important movie for the horror genre. We love Romero and we love zombies.
Classic zombie movie. Not nightmare-inducing scary, but definitely worth the watch.
Again if you have a subscription to shudder and haven’t seen this movie that’s crazy. I consider this the father to zombie movies! If you get a chance to see the rest of the movies in this series you won’t be disappointed. The remakes are all real good as well.
