George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is one of the most revolutionary films in the history of the horror genre. Shot very far from Hollywood—in Pittsburgh—on an extremely small budget, with the look and feel of a documentary, Night of the Living Dead opens with a pair of siblings laughing as a clumsy, zombie-like figure lumbers towards them. As it turns it out, he is a flesh-eating zombie after all, and the initial jokes soon give way to terror as the undead leave the cemetery and ultimately pursue the film’s assorted individuals to a secluded farmstead. Romero raved about this 4K restoration—the film’s first—before passing away earlier this summer. This Halloween season, come celebrate one of the genre’s true visionaries, and a classic that has paved the way for the careers of David Cronenberg, Tobe Hooper, and Sam Raimi.
