This remake of George Romero's classic 1968 horror film is an almost exact replica of the first except that it is in color, the female lead is stronger, and the ending is different. The story centers on a town that is terrorized by a graveyard full of voracious flesh-eating zombies.

Critic Reviews for Night of the Living Dead
If you can detach yourself from the original, you may just have a blast with this one...
This Night barely musters the energy to pass for a rank special effects showcasing.
Completely unnecessary but not-terrible remake tells the exact same story with a few twists.
Now THIS is how to do a remake!
I liked this remake. Had a nonstop energy and slight twists on the original.
As far as unnecessary remakes go, this one isn't bad.
Useless remake with good effects.
Pointless, but passable remake.
A good remake of the 50's classic, which ups the ante in the action and gore department. Solid performances from Tony Todd and Patricia Tallman.
A competent update of George A. Romero's horror classic.
...there's the "Bar-B-Que" scene, lasting only a few seconds, but long enough to cause nightmares for the rest of your life.
Audience Reviews for Night of the Living Dead
Mediocre remake of a zombie classic. There is nothing really to say about this remake aside that it is very much like the first, shot for shot, and doesn't do anything good whatsoever to try and break new ground where some remakes do, or at least try, this one doesn't. Sure it changes a few things around, but overall, it doesn't do anything thrilling that will appeal to the viewer. If you've seen the original, then there is no need in seeing this version. Directed by veteran horror special effects artist Tom Savini, this updated version of George Romero's classic film does feature well done special effects. But that's the only good thing about this film. This film relies way too much on the first film to create its tone, like I said it's shot for shot. Thus it becomes predictable, and uninteresting. The cast are decent, nothing ever good. However they don't make this film good or decent. Since this film is way too close to the source material to the original, it's clear that there was no other reason to remake the Romero classic to try and do something refreshing to the story. The only reason they remade the film was to make it for a new type of audience. This film simply doesn't do it for me, and I felt that it was quite unnecessary to remake it. Stick with the classic film, as you're not missing out on anything with this film. This film is just the same old carbon copy that we've seen such as Gus Van Sant's Psycho. Do yourself a favor and avoid this film.More
Night of the Living Dead (1990), just like the original, have a very good screenplay, and show more action and scary moments with the special effects, Tom Savini's direction help, a lot too this fun remake from George A. Romero's 1968 classic. Fresh.More
Reasonably good remake of the influencial original from '68. Manages to achieve the same atmosphere as the first and attempts to out-do it in terms of the gory content, which it just about manages despite it being cut to please the MPAA. The film also features some of the best looking Zombies ever to appear in the genre. It may be a pointless remake but still a solid little film.More
really an average remake. tony todd was the only great casting decision, and most of the cast was guilty of some horrible overacting. tom towles played cooper like a caricature of the original version. most of the changes made from the remake were for the worse, and the only reason to see this is for comparison. the original is much better.More
