About the movie

The movie that started it all for me! Night of the Living Dead is a 1968 black-and-white American independent horror film directed by George A. Romero, starring Duane Jones, Judith O’Dea and Karl Hardman. It premiered on October 1, 1968, and was completed on a US$114,000 budget. The film became a financial success, grossing $12 million domestically and $18 million internationally. Night of the Living Dead was heavily criticized at its release owing to explicit content, but eventually garnered critical acclaim and has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a film deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”

Plot

Barbra (Judith O’Dea) and Johnny (Russell Streiner) drive to rural Pennsylvania for an annual visit to their father’s grave. Noticing Barbra’s discomfort, Johnny teases, “They’re coming to get you, Barbra”, before she is attacked by a strange man (Bill Hinzman). Johnny tries to rescue his sister, but falls and cracks his head on a gravestone. Barbra flees, with the zombie in pursuit, to a farmhouse where, to her horror, she discovers a woman’s mangled corpse. Running out of the house, she is confronted by strange menacing figures like the man in the graveyard. Ben (Duane Jones) arrives in a truck and takes her back inside the house. Barbra slowly descends into shock as Ben drives the zombies from the house and begins boarding up the doors and windows.

Other

The film has entered the public domain due to an error by the distributor. The first video below is the full movie on Youtube.
