Night of the Living Dead
descends upon the world as the brains of the recently
deceased become inexplicably reanimated, causing the dead to
rise and feed on human flesh.
REVIEW: The 1968 Horror classic Night of the living
Dead has not died. The tension it gives to the audience
still captivates fans of the genre in this day and age, and
its new 40th anniversary edition looks amazing. Watching
this old movie show me that you do not need outstanding
special effects and make up to make people feel tension and
desperation for a good period of time. George A Romero and
company did a great job showing this interesting story where
a group strangers find themselves in a house that is being
watched over by flesh eating zombies, and the only way to
survive is to leave their differences aside and work
together as one.
This movie will get you attention from beginning to end. The
cast deliver a great performance showing us this story full
of suspense and horror. Each actor performance is amazing.
All of them show all the characterís emotions, personality,
strengths, and weakness as best as it could have been done.
this allows to create a great and dark atmosphere that would
make the audience interested. Also for being an old horror
movie it is full of gore, keep in mind that this is a 60s
movie and the special effects were nothing compared as the
ones today, but some scenes are graphic enough for the
audience to get the point. And the sound is outstanding, it
hypnotize the audience and make them believe they are part
of the movie. Aside the main characters, what Romero does
best is how he uses the undead, as menacing as they are,
Romero does not increment any human attribute; they are not
unstoppable, and sometimes even the living are scarier than
the dead, which allow the story some realism.
Night of the Living Death it is without a doubt a must have
for the horror fans. Its legacy has set the deadlines for
many horror movies. It is a movie that will manage to scare
and surprised the audience for the time it last, also it is
valuable as a Cultural article since it is one of the
pioneer in zombies movies and more important it portrays the
American way of life at that time. The DVD comes full of
interesting extras that fans of Romero and the movie will
