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.

What can I say about this that hasn't already been said before!? classic!
A absolute classic. Great cinematography, acting, and pretty much everything. The Citizen Kane of Zombie films.
