This film is oone of the scariest Zombie flicks of all time, despite the hundreds of terrible zombie-based imitations of this classic. The film was made at a time of film revoltion in the world, and was the first to graphically show explicit scenes of people being eaten alive.
The storyline is an original one and has got some great ideas added into it. The radiation from a fallen satellite causes the recently deceased to rise from their burial places, and seek living flesh as food.
The film starts with two young siblings who visit their mothers grave, three hours from their home. The brother,Jonny, starts teasing his sister, Barbara (Judith O'Dea, saying that theman accross the graveyardis aftr her. She starts apologising to the man when he jumps on her and tries to eat her. Jonny fends him off as Barbara runs. She ends up in a farmhouse with six other people. They barricade themselves in, to try and survive from the onslaught of hoarding zombies.
Stomach-churning tension non-stop throught the film, mixed with eerie tunes, make this a truly terrifying film.
I reccomend this to any true fan of the horror genre.
Everyone knows what this film is about, and how important to the horror movie industry so I won't bore you with plot details. I think everyone should try to see this film at least once. It is a million times better than the 1991 remake, and it's the first of what is arguably the best trilogy in horror movie history.
Personally, the film's first sequel, 'Dawn of the Dead' is my favourite of the trilogy.
