Night of the Living Dead Review

Synopsis:

There is panic throughout the nation as the dead suddenly come back to life. The film follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt the remain safe from these flesh eating monsters.

Zombie infestation starts after a satellite crashes back to earth then emits radiation thus bring back the dead as walking dead zombie flesh eaters. Survivors end up retreating to a lonely farmhouse to take shelter against the zombie swarm.

Black and white might hold you back from this classic movie along with the low budget, but you will enjoy this one. Not too scary considering the graphics and style of today’s films but the movie still holds its weight. I heard stories growing up of old time horror fans who saw this the same night it came out and were scared to the bone while fearing to go home.

Best zombie kill scene: The final kill scene has to be the one that comes to mind, what a shame.
