Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Night of the Living Dead is a 1968 black-and-white independent horror film directed by George A. Romero. Early drafts of the script were titled Monster Flick, but it was known as Night of Anubis and Night of the Flesh Eaters during production. The film stars Duane Jones as Ben and Judith O'Dea as Barbra. The plot revolves around the mysterious reanimation of the dead and the efforts of Ben, Barbra and five others to survive the night while trapped in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse. Night of the Living Dead was strongly criticized at the time of its release for its graphic content. In 1999 the Library of Congress entered it into the United States National Film Registry with other films deemed "historically, culturally or aesthetically important." The film had a tremendous impact on the culture of Vietnam-era America. It is so thoroughly laden with critiques of late-1960s American society that one historian described the film as "subversive on many levels.
The radiation from a fallen satellite might have caused the recentlydeceased to rise from the grave and seek the living to use as food.This is the situation that a group of people penned up in an oldfarmhouse must deal with. Romero set in place a steady breakdown of all our assumptions ofthe horror film, which he then utilised to full effect through the restof this film and the two superb sequels that followed.This is perhaps one of the greatest low budget cult movies ever made,certainly one of the most influential, and in its brutally harrowingdocumentary style conclusion a harsh statement on American racialattitudes. This is the 3d version of the original 1968 movie, in superb quality from a high definition master. This version requires 3d glasses to enjoy the full 3d experience.

George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead DVD (1968) Starring Judith O'Dea, Russ Streiner, Duane Jones, Karl Hardman, Keith Wayne
George A. Romero's first film would revolutionize horror movie making forever. Night of the Living Dead, shot in straightforward black and white, brought gore and despair to the screen in a manner never before attempted: as blunt a representation as possible. Not the first film to utilize gore, Night of the Living Dead was the first film to present weird, bloody carnage as an existential terror that had no meaning and no resolution. This concept was embraced by youth who were disillusioned with the Vietnam War and thus the no-budget zombie flick became a cult success. Shot with a stark feel, the mindless zombies descend upon the completely innocent. This simple structure has lead many to interpret the film as political allegory meditating upon white people's fear of minorities. But for its political significance, rebellious filmmaking, and historical importance, Night of the Living Dead is a definitive classic.
This classic, low budget horror film has bred many sequels and copycats. In this movie dead locals in a rural Pennsylvania town torment a group of strangers that get held up in a farmhouse defending themselves from the undead. If the living get bit by one of the zombies they will become a zombie themselves. The only way to kill the zombies is with blunt force trauma to the head. Will the strangers survive and outlast the zombies or will they all become undead?
