Synopsis

Fathom Events and Living Dead Media are bringing George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead 50th Anniversary to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event, featuring an exclusive introduction from George C. Romero and Andrew Romero. Shot outside Pittsburgh on a shoestring budget, by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, Night of the Living Dead is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role. Stark, haunting, and more relevant than ever, Night of the Living Dead is back.

Goofs

  • The first time we see the dead body at the top of the stairs, the face has been eaten away. Later when the body is being dragged away, the rug conveniently covers the face but for a split second we are able to see the face and it is clearly normal.

A stark, eerie and unrelenting parable of dread. There’s a brute force in Night of the Living Dead that catches one in the throat.
