NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)
George Romero's classic is one of the horror genre's best and most influential films. The low-budget thriller broke the color barrier with the casting of an African-American man as the hero — the rational man of action against unrelenting living dead in search of live flesh. Trapped in this nightmare with him are a young couple, a bewildered family of three and a young woman who loses her brother early on in a most unsettling manner. Flying in the face of convention and viewer expectations at every turn, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is as vibrant and socially relevant today as it was nearly 50 years ago. DIR/SCR George A. Romero; SCR John A. Russo; PROD Karl Hardman, Russell Streiner. U.S., 1968, b&w, 96 min. NOT RATED
