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.

its a classic that will be relevant until the end of time. a must watch for all horror fans
That ending was sad
A true masterpiece of classic horror! Holds up even in today’s standards due to a truly compelling storyline and some neat special effects.
everybody always quotes the "They're coming to get you Barbara" line, but growing up me and my friends always quoted Barbara right after he said that: "Stop it! You're IGNORANT" 😂 seriously, pay attention to the way she delivers that line and you will quote that all the time.
This is a personal favorite. More proof that as fun as gore effects are, they are not required for intensity.
