Night of the Living Dead Reviews

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Seldom have so many pundit parses and public praises owed so much to so little as in the case of the career-launching 'Night of the Living Dead.'

The dialogue and background music sound hollow, as if they had been recorded in an empty swimming pool, and the wobbly camera seems to have a fetishist's interest in hands.

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

"Night of the Living Dead" became a seminal film without being a particularly good one. It nudged horror movies away from creepy-but-family-friendly into adult films featuring gruesome violence and nihilistic overtones.

I felt real terror in that neighborhood theater last Saturday afternoon. I saw kids who had no resources they could draw upon to protect themselves from the dread and fear they felt.

Director George A Romero redefined the meaning of horror for fear-sated audiences in the 1960s with this seminal classic.

Eye for Film

This is horror at its most probing, subversive and socially aware, with a truly harrowing ending that reveals the dangers of misdirected fear and prejudice.

If [Romero's] original vision of the undead looks dulled by today's standards, his embedded political commentary on racism feels just as sharp.

Romero saw the enemy, and they are the zombie masses among us. There is nowhere safe to hide.

Oft-copied zombie classic is still intense and gory.

Night of the Living Dead happens to rank squarely with the greatest films ever made, period.

It's pitch perfect in writing, mood, and scares, and still holds up to scrutiny, no matter how harsh.

Although pic's basic premise is repellent -- recently dead bodies are resurrected and begin killing human beings in order to eat their flesh -- it is in execution that the film distastefully excels.

I can't underrate its intangible ability to bypass my rationale and lunge straight at my subconscious. When it's really cooking, it's the scariest film I've ever seen.
