Night of the Living Dead

Night of the Living Dead FINAL Play Button

In its 50th anniversary year, George Romero’s cult classic provides thrills and chills as an icon of American horror. Ben (Duane Jones) and Barbra Cole (Judith O’Dea) find themselves trapped in a farmhouse cellar with five strangers, all working towards a common goal: stay alive and escape the zombies that pursue them. Embedded with subversive commentary on race relations in the 1960s and featuring a Black male protagonist, Night of the Living Deadretains a cultural relevance not just as a pioneer of the zombie genre, but as a political force in the modern conversation of U.S. racial politics. Introduction by Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies)
