Night of the Living Dead
Saturday, Jul 23 at 2:00 pm
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. George A. Romero. 1968, 96 mins. DCP. With Duane Jones, Judith O’Dea, Marilyn Eastman, Karl Hardman, Judith Ridley, Keith Wayne. This is how it all began. Romero’s seminal, independent zombie movie laid the groundwork for the indie horror film. And there has yet to be another film about the cannibalistic undead as scary as the original. This black-and-white nightmare, in which a motley group of terrified people barricade themselves in a farmhouse to ward off legions of hungry zombies, is a masterful work of horror that also functions as a work of social commentary at the close of a decade defined by a reckoning with American racism.
