Night of the Living Dead Rated 15

Night of the Living Dead

Dir. George A. Romero. USA, 1968. 1h 36m. Starring Duane Jones, Judith O'Dea, Russell Streiner, Karl Hardman, Keith Wayne, Marilyn Eastman, Judith Ridley.

The late George Romero’s low budget story of strangers battling an invasion of the undead defined the genre and remains the best zombie film ever.

Cinema owner Becky Hallsmith says: 'I was introduced to this by the excellent Sussex University Film Society a few weeks before my 18th birthday. The low budget and not-so-special effects didn’t stop it scaring me witless - and that for me is the true magic of film.'

'The film that changed it all, that took horror out of the realm of creaky castles and mad science and into the harsh light of the modern day’ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out

’Made in 1968 on a hand‑to‑mouth budget by enthusiasts in Pittsburgh, this suitably grungy off‑Hollywood production became one of the most influential horror movies ever made’ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
