A classic a real gem that in it’s time and day really brought fright and fear!
Finally after all these years watched the cult hit classic of the now late George A. Romero’s “1968’s” “Night of the living Dead”. And for it’s time this low budget independent picture was a masterpiece that helped change the landscape and gave upcoming horror films a new path to follow. For 1968 and being in black and white it had plenty of gore, death, and blood. And even a few twists and turns in the plot were found.
Set in Pennsylvania in a small farm town the nearby graveyard starts to come alive and one by the dead have risen! And oddly enough this is a panic and epidemic that is all over the country!
It’s a battle of will and determination for survival against the walking undead! Many will not like this film when comparing today’s standards of special effects, graphics, and “CGI” yet one can see that this old classic was a gateway to current hits like “The Walking Dead”.
George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead retains some of its classic stature
After having just watched Carnival of Souls for the first time, I rewatched this one especially after finding out George A. Romero was inspired by the previous film when making this. It starts with a grown brother and sister named Johnny (Russel Streiner who also produced) and Barbra (Judith O’Dea) going to the cemetery to place a wreath on their father’s grave. It’s there that the first ghoul arrives to attack the sister and kill the brother. When Barbra goes to an abandoned house, Ben (Duane Jones) is the only one there since the dead previous tenant is upstairs with her face skin already eaten. It later turns out there are others emerging from the cellar. Among them are Tom (Keith Wayne), his girlfriend Judy (Judith Ridley who was married to Streiner at the time), Harry Cooper (Karl Hardman, the other producer who also did makeup and engineered the sound effects), and his wife Helen (Marilyn Eastman who would eventually become Hardman’s real life spouse). The latter couple’s daughter Karen (Kyra Schon who’s Hardman’s actual offspring) is lying in the cellar since she got bitten by a zombie. I’ll stop there and just say while this movie was not completely scary, it was effectively atmospheric and provided a great shock at the end, even more so when the stills (also provided by Hardman) were presented during the closing credits. Some of the dialogue provided by Romero and John A. Russo might have been a little too talky but they do provide enough explanation as to why things happen as they did. And you gotta dig the stock music from the TV series “The Fugitive” and an eventual “MST3K” entry called Teenagers from Outer Space. There was later a 30th Anniversary Edition with an added opening and closing scene but I don’t recommend that. But I most definitely recommend this, the original Night of the Living Dead.
