There are those who claim that you can't riff a comedy, but I'd say that you can't riff a really good movie either, and that's what Nelson, Murphy and Corbett take on in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Despite its low budget, its lack of gore (by today's standards), and the catatonic performance of its lead actress, no other horror movie conveys a sense of claustrophobia and adrenaline-fueled panic better than NOTLD, and its nihilistic ending is both inevitable and unexpected; in a word, perfect.

Riffing works as a critique of bad movies by lampooning them in real time; it's the viewer vs. the film, and if the riffs are funny enough, the viewer wins. Rifftrax's NOTLD feels more like nitpicking than comic deconstruction, and before long I just wanted to watch the movie without the riffing. (But don't do that with this disc -- the movie is skipping video frames from beginning to end, for some reason.)

THE BEST OF RIFFTRAX SHORTS companion disc provides more consistent laughs. The nine shorts include:

"Down and Out" - A workplace safety film demonstrating that DOING ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING can lead to serious injury!

"Patriotism" - Bob Crane stops by to enlighten kids about what it means to be patriotic.

"Buying Food" - "OH MY GOD I FORGOT HOW TO BUY FOOD!"

"Skipper Learns a Lesson" - A canine bigot gets his comeuppance.

"Right or Wrong" - A morality play about the consequences of petty vandalism.

"Drugs are Like That" - Anita Bryant narrates an incoherent anti-drug film comparing drugs to harmless things that aren't drugs...especially Legos.

"The Trouble with Women" - Those darn women in the workplace!

"It Must Be the Neighbors" - Your front yard is a breeding ground for DISEASE AND DEATH!

"Shake Hands with Danger" - A gruesome series of vignettes about people who take safety shortcuts while operating heavy equipment.

Always a Laugh 13 Dec. 2011

I am NEVER DISAPPOINTED in these. Rifftrax are fricken hysterical. When I have a bad day or a long week of work there is nothing better than watching these and literally LMAO! If you like Mystery Science Theater you will enjoy these as well! :)

What you expect 23 Mar. 2010
By Zap Rowsdower - Published on Amazon.com

Although it's not their best work ever, I am happy to see a good take on NOTLD. There are many stretches of time without dialogue and these are always problematic for the Riff guys. Toward the end they come on strong with the introduction of the zombie hunting posse. The shorts were a great addition to this package. The informational film that warns of falling in the workplace is worth the price alone because it is the perfect storm of a ridiculous film plus spot-on riffing!

total perfection!! 27 Mar. 2014
By Deidre Ann - Published on Amazon.com
This DVD has a lot going for it!! First, we have the wonderful Rifftrax shorts (how anyone ever took these instructional films seriously is beyond me). Next add on the always hilariously talented Mike, Kevin and Bill. Finally, add Night of the Living Dead. The result? The perfect DVD for your Friday night/end of work week time to chill out with a DVD and your favorite takeout. And you know you deserve a treat after a long work week so go for it!!
