Night of the Living Dead
release year:1968 genre:horror viewing setting:home VHS 10/28/00 and home laserdisc ??/??/?? what I expected:zombie madness what I got:dated zombie madness
synopsis:The dead are coming back to life and eating the living, so a bunch of strangers hole up in a house together in the hopes of surviving the night.
impressions:Good premise, well-done, but a little dated, given that most Americans have now seen enough horror movies to know what to do in certain situations. For an older and more humorous review, click here.
acting:The main good guy did a great job, and the main bad guy was very unlikeable.
final word:A classic, may or may not hold up today, but worth checking out regardless.
