Night of the Living Dead (George A. Romero, USA, 1968)

Romero conjures moments of eeriness and dread throughout, keeping the lighting low and the special effects to a minimum, though there will be blood, fire, cannibalism and a great deal of death...
— Steve Rose, Guardian

As the dead rise to feed on the flesh of the living, a ragtag group of Pennsylvanians barricade themselves in an old farmhouse to remain safe. Cue creeping dread, paranoia, and one of the most startling and genuinely horrific horror movies ever made. George A. Romero's no-budget debut feature has a quasi-documentary feel which still packs a punch after all these years. And as a satire on American culture and racial politics, Night of the Living Dead remains sadly pertinent today.
