June 21st, 2013: Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Cast and Crew:    Duane Jones

What It’s About: Strangers take refugee in a farm-house in rural Pennsylvania from the recently dead, who returned to life with a hunger for the flesh of the living.

Why Watch it Today?:  Night of the Living Dead takes place just at dusk on the Summer SolsticeNight of the Living Dead was horror legend George A. Romero’s first film, a tremendous success, and responsible for replacing the traditional zombie-the dead raised by a voodoo priest and robbed of their souls for unending slavery-with the modern mindless flesh eaters.  Night of the Living Dead is a still disturbing horror classic.  I suggest turning it on just before dark.

Watch the entire film at Hulu or YouTube:
