About the Movie

"One of the 20 Scariest Movies of All Time" (Entertainment Weekly), George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead still sets the standard for all indie fright flicks. This 40th Anniversary Edition, authorized by the director himself, reanimates the landmark tale of five strangers who struggle desperately against hordes of the walking undead. Re-mastered and loaded with all-new Special Features, Night of the Living Dead remains "a bona fide classic..still very scary after all these years" (Jason Jones,

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Although pic's basic premise is repellent -- recently dead bodies are resurrected and begin killing human beings in order to eat their flesh -- it is in execution that the film distastefully excels. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The immediate, quasi-documentary feel, a result of budgetary constraints, actually served the film's horror, jolting audiences because it all seemed just a little too real. – April Wolfe, Village Voice, Dec 1, 2017

Fresh: George Romero's remarkably assured debut, made on a shoestring, about a group of people barricaded inside a farmhouse while an army of flesh-eating zombies roams the countryside, deflates all genre cliches. – Elliott Stein, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: I felt real terror in that neighborhood theater last Saturday afternoon. I saw kids who had no resources they could draw upon to protect themselves from the dread and fear they felt. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Oct 14, 2014

Great friday night movie

The film starts off like any horror film should. You get straight to the good stuff, and then you slowly build up the plot, before you prepare for the finale!

There's plenty of scenes that could be seen as "controversial" for the time period.
The ending is also a little iffy, but nothing unbearable.

Great movie to watch on a friday night while chowing down on popcorn!


Have to say that the picture quality is vastly superior to several other versions.
The sound quality is pretty great too. There's a few versions out there that have a really muffled sound during the last great attack scene. They fixed that problem in this version, as well as increasing the light at the introduction scene.

Just a note...

Just as a note for all interested parties: Night if the Living Dead is in the public domain and thus can be found for free, no strings attached.


This movie is incredible its one of my favorites the only thing that would make it better is if it was in color
