I got my nerve up to finally see this movie. My mom watched it with me. She remembered it from when she was younger. It was filmed here in PA, and I recognized all the counties they would put on the tv screen telling people where to go to rescue stations.

It was pretty darn creepy. If I would have been younger, I would have been alot more scared than I was, but I still had a blanket and a pillow over my head.

We read that they used chocolate syrup for blood, which would have worked because of it being black and white. I think black and white movies are more scary than color movies.

My son read...as a publicity stunt they made an insurance policy against anyone who died of shock/or a heart attack while watching the movie.

I thought it was a pretty cool movie. I couln't get into the sequels or remakes. My wife can't watch it. It makes her sick.

This is one of those classic old school horror movies where everyone dies. Didn't Rob Zombie try to bring that style back in House of 1000 corpses? Yeah, this movie gave me the creeps when I watched it when I was younger. The fact that you couldn't kill the zombies and they kept coming after you.

Yeah...every person dies in it...nobody survives, so that right there was pretty awful. You at least wanna hope that one gets away...after all they go through...so the end was pretty shocking. I have no idea what it was rated...I thought for it being in the 60's...it was pretty on the edge ...the main character was a black man, and there is a scene where he smacks a white girl across the face to get her to snap out of it...I thought that was pretty bold for the time period.

There were a few swear words, and there was even brief nudity...one of the zombie women was naked. (it was a "rear" view though. hahaha)

I actually like it when I see a movie I have never seen before, and I end up thinking I should have seen it sooner.

My mom recognized the one news reporter...she said he had his own show on Saturday nights back then...and sometimes he'd dress up in scary costumes...

When my mom tells me about the stuff they use to watch on TV and how they use to sit together as a family and get all excited about a program, that's something you don't see any more.

"They´re coming to get you, Barbara"....still gives me the creeps.

Shot in 1968 on a shoestring budget in cheap black-and-white by a small group of independent filmmakers from Pittsburgh, 'Night of the Living Dead' set a new standard for what can be done in the horror genre. It introduced realistic gore to the mainstream, showed that an ordinary farmhouse can be a far more claustrophobic and frightening setting than a castle or mansion, and most of all demonstrated the devastating dramatic potential of an unhappy ending.
