It's difficult to envision how stunning this George A. Romero film was when it first broke on the film scene in 1968. There's never ever been anything quite like it, though it's inspired many pale imitations. Part of the horror lies in the fact that this one's shot in such a raw, unadorned fashion it seems like a house film, and all the more authentic for that. Another is that it draws us into its world slowly, content to establish a simply scary environment prior to leading us through a horrifically sensible progression that we could hardly have actually prepared for. The story is simple. Radiation from a fallen satellite has actually triggered the dead to walk and hunger for human flesh. Once bitten, you turned into one of them. And the only way to kill one is by a shot or blow to the head. We follow a group holed up in a small farmhouse to fend off the inescapable assault of the dead. And it's the tensions in between the members of this unstable, makeshift community that drive the film. Night of the Living Dead develops its savagery as a necessary condition of life. Marked by casualty and a grim humour, it chomps through to the bone, then continues on to the marrow.-- Jim Gay
