Night of the Living Dead
96 minutes / Ages 17+ / 1968 / United States of America / Average:
George A. Romero's original masterpiece, one of the most influential films ever made, and still one of the scariest.
Made for next to nothing on borrowed equipment in 1968, "Night of the Living Dead" shattered every possible taboo, onscreen and off. It spawned a genre, redefined mainstream horror, destroyed traditional distinctions of serious versus schlocky, and propelled independent cinema toward its golden age. Possibly the single most influential independent film ever made, its effects continue today.
