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.

It certainly hasn’t aged well when compared to current zombie films; many flaws, but a lot of charm. If you love zombie movies, you have to see the film that birthed the genre. It’s one I come back to many times.
My all time favorite horror film.
CLASSIC! powerful movie.
Beyond just a classic horror film seriously amazing
Makes a bold statement within a bold masterpiece.
