Many years ago in the quiet Pennsylvania countryside, the dead began to walk. Fuelled for an insatiable hunger for human flesh, the ghouls ghastly quest inadvertently brought together six strangers whose inability to unite would ultimately lead to their tragic downfall.
George A. Romero’s debut set the template for the zombie film, and features tight editing, realistic gore, and a sly political undercurrent.
