Night of the Living Dead - 55th Anniversary Celebration Of This Modern Horror Film Featuring The Production, The Cast & The Legacy
No one knew what to expect when Night of the Living Dead debuted in 1968. More than five decades later, this low-budget independent movie still hasn't lost its power or influence: Night of the Living Dead became the prototype for how to make a modern horror masterpiece. This was the film that proved the genre could deliver much more than goofy monsters, bad special effects, and a few cheap thrills. It was as thought-provoking as it was gruesome. Its story reflected the turmoil filled 1960s, but was also simple to understand. And—in the end—it tapped into the deep fears of the audience like no horror film had ever done before, and every such movie has aspired to do since.
