When corpses emerge from a graveyard in search of fresh humans to devour, a disparate group of individuals takes refuge in an abandoned house. The pragmatic Ben does his best to control the situation, but when the murderous zombies surround the house, the other survivors begin to panic.
Some like ghost stories, and some prefer their undead as a bloodthirsty horde. Here’s where the world’s zombie obsession began: George Romero’s landmark classic, a raging, subversive, apocalyptic bonfire of a film. By the time the lights came up, horror would never be the same—and it still shocks.
