Rating: 5/5 -- The movie remains unsettling after all these years because of its bleak simplicity. Full Review
...The best thing is that NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD isn't over-composed -- it just hurtles ahead with all its gruesomeness...
Los Angeles Times
A slightly tacky horror picture which makes quite an impact; partly, I suspect, by ingeniously playing off its own limitations. Full Review
...Second only to PSYCHO among influential horror films... -- Rating: A+
Rating: 5/5 -- Night of the Living Dead is a revolutionary moment in American independent cinema, a film that inspired countless of filmmakers to pick up a camera and attempt their dream with nothing more than a handful of friends, a shoestring budget, and a vision. Full Review
Over its short, furious course, the picture violates so many strong taboos -- cannibalism, incest, necrophilia -- that it leaves audiences giddy and hysterical. Full Review
The immediate, quasi-documentary feel, a result of budgetary constraints, actually served the film's horror, jolting audiences because it all seemed just a little too real. Full Review
George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is a low-budget, homegrown classic that had great difficulty finding a distributor at the time of its release in 1968, and has since become one of the most influential horror films of all time. (Aside from its visceral impact years before realistic gore became the fashion, the film is also important for its portrayal of a black man as the protagonist during a time when race was an extremely sensitive issue in the United States.) The plot is simple: seven people secluded in a Pennsylvania farmhouse face relentless attacks by reanimated corpses seeking to eat their flesh. The group, which includes a married couple and their daughter, a pair of young lovers, and an African-American man, try to keep their sanity as the living dead keep trying to enter the house. Radio news reports tell of the plague taking over the eastern United States, while the ever-decreasing band of survivors rapidly loses ground in the battle to both keep peace with one another and stay alive.
