Director/cowriter George Romero's gruesome and groundbreaking cult classic pioneered the zombie genre of horror films and spawned a host of sequels, remakes, and imitators. 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. 96 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
