Yep. This is the one, folks, that started the whole messy, flesh-eating, zombie craze 45 long years ago._____ And I know that it's kinda weird to say this, but, as low-grade (and, yes, laughable) in every aspect (especially the acting) as this horror movie is, it's essential power to still terrify and chill (even by today's brutal standards) somehow makes it superior to all of the many, many imitators that it's spawned, over all of these many years._____ After seeing countless zombie movies in my days, I still personally consider 1968's Night of the Living Dead to be one of the very best zombie movies ever made. I know that really isn't saying too much, but, I think that this is a genre that has just gotten steadily worse, rather than better, over the years, since its original incarnation back in 1968._____ And - "Hey! Look! Here comes one of them now!"

It makes one wonder if George Romero had never made this film would we have such series as The walking dead and a whole host of zombie films,books AND such a following of zombie fans.

(Double Feature)

(Night of The Living Dead - 4 stars) This 1968 'B' movie was completed on a $114,000 budget, and after decades of cinematic re-releases, it has grossed $12 million domestically and $18 million internationally! Good investment, Mr. Romero... The acting is decent, and the film deserves respect for the genre it created.

(Bucket of Blood - 2.5 stars) A passable one time view film for a glimpse at ('King of the 'B' Movies') Roger Corman's (and writer Charles B. Griffith's) satirical stab at late 1950's bohemian artists and beatnik youth.

It’s a classic but super goofy to the point where it was almost kind of funny because it’s so ridiculous!

There coming to get you Barbara........better find your HOMETHEATER. I've always found it better to watch and listen to your movies in a theater like surrounding. Even if it's just mono or two channel stereo sound. This movie is a classic!!! I know this because when Duane Jones was killed at the end i was pissed!!! Not because of race, but his character did so much to help those fools trapped with him in the house. It affected me emotionally which means very good story telling and acting. I give this classic black and white horror flick 5 stars!!! Good story, good zombies, good acting, and the black and white filming fit this film perfectly. Chocolate doughnuts with milk...

Another classic of the genre and a must-see for the true horror fan. While those brought up with the new zombie apocolypse phase we are going through right now may laugh and snicker, this low budget film is genuinely creepy and scary.

The movie that started the Living Dead movie series. Although a low budget movie, it was very well done.

(Night of The Living Dead) TV Newsman #1: "The bodies should be disposed of at once, preferably by cremation." TV Newsman #2: "Well, how long after death then does the body become reactivated?" #1: "It's only a matter of minutes." #2: "Minutes? Well that doesn't give people time to make any arrangements..." #1: "No, you're right, it doesn't give them time to make funeral arrangements. The bodies must be burned immediately! Soak them with gasoline and burn them. The bereaved will have to forego the dubious comforts that funeral services will give. They're just dead flesh, and dangerous."
