A family, a man, and a woman hold up in a farmhouse as they try to survive an attack of zombies.
I should forgive this 1968 classic for its poor special effects, its misogyny, its predictable character types, it plot holes, its overwrought performances, and its lack of any ethica...

With some visually impressive images for it's time, and being one of the first films to have a boarded up home, fighting zombies away, "Night of the Living Dead," to me, was the spark of the genre. So many good films have come from this genre, and even dating all the way back to ...

This little low-budget classic set the standard for future horror films. It also kick started the zombie subgenre as we know it today.
The set up of a group of people banding together in an isolated farmhouse during a growing epidemic is simple, but the execution is superb, and ...

This movie has truly earned it's legendary status. It's far from my favorite movie, but you can't deny, the genius and execution involved. This might have been one of the most influential movies of all time. How many movies have imitated or been influenced, by this, the origin...

When John Landis was being interviewed on BBC Radio 5 Live for his new book Monsters at the Movies, he commented that zombies have become the main monsters of the early-21st century. From the re-tooling of Down of the Dead and political, 'infected' movies like 28 Days Later, to s...

An above average schlocky horror movie that was lucky to be the first zombie movie, even though nobody in the film says the z-word. The film starts out pretty good with the famous graveyard scene, and the ending is a pretty clever anti-Hollywood ending. However, this film simpl...
