Movie Trailer of the Day: Night of the Living Dead

Arguably the most influential fright flick ever made, Night of the Living Dead is a true masterpiece. Director/cowriter George Romero‘s gruesome and groundbreaking cult classic pioneered the zombie genre of horror movies and spawned a host of sequels, remakes, and imitators. (Not to mention the pop culture juggernaut that is The Walking Dead). A disparate group of people takes refuge in an isolated farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania in a desperate bid for survival as they come under siege by hordes of the recently deceased, returned to “life” as bloodthirsty, flesh-eating ghouls. Duane Jones, Judith O’Dea, Karl Hardman star. With Halloween soon to be upon us, this perennial favorite is a no-brainer (pun intended) to be featured in one of our trailer of the day posts. To paraphrase the film, they’re undead, they’re all messed up.
