Night of the Living Dead

Night of the Living Dead ★★★★½

Night of the Living Dead is the grand-daddy of all zombie films, and it is a masterfully executed film. It is an effectively horrifying story and scenario and I loved how much they keep us in the dark about the situation to add to that terror. The characters, while not always likeable, are always relateable and empathizable, you understand why they do the things they do and can see yourself either agreeing or disagreeing with them if you were in that situation.

When I heard that George Romero had died, I knew that this was a film that I needed to see again. George Romero's legacy is grand and without him, we might not have zombies as a part of our pop culture scene and we most certainly wouldn't have zombies in the same way that we do now. If you've ever enjoyed a piece of media that included zombies in anyway, you can thank George Romero for popularizing zombies. R.I.P. George Romero
