Considering when and how this was made, it's incredible how terrific the finished product is. So influential, so ahead of its time, and it still holds up well today! Easily one of the greatest horror movies, period.

I like how this movie has the archetypes that would be used in zombie movies in the decades to come. You've got the girl who's too shocked to do a whole lot, the guy who keeps his head and manages to do well, the irrational guy who does everything he can to get everyone killed... it's all here. What a classic and a setting of the stage for what was to come.

The ending gives the movie even more profound meaning.

With Night of the Living Dead, George Romero created the modern zombie - and the Zombie Apocalypse - in a slick, energetic package that only at first SEEMS to be old-fashioned. The black and white treatment takes us back to a time where you couldn't expect gore, or fast, intimate camera moves, or an African-American hero. Indeed, that seems quite progressive, but it's also part of the theme. White-faced hordes are descending on him and the people he's trying to protect, and the final gut punch asks us whether you need to be a zombie to fall in with a careless, murderous posse. While you're watching, you're not necessarily thinking about all that. It's enough that there's unrelenting tension, even when you're just basically watching a guy board up some windows, and the story is given some scope through radio and television reports (that's the one flaw though, all those "live" daytime TV reports). I thought I would see the invention of a genre unfold before my eyes, but it managed to be more than that, resonating in a way its cinematic spawn rarely equaled.

What can I really say that hasn't already been said. It's a classic. It created an entire sub-genre of Horror. It's one of the most important independent films of all time. And the very fact of it's imperfect, rough around the edges, Un-Hollywood nature are what make it timelessly appealing.

I recommend buying the Criterion version and educating yourself on this piece of American History.

Good movie, agree with @MrE2Me! A great movie's ending, most horror movies have cliché endings.

Very understandably influential film with a fantastic thought-provoking closure. The credits of this movie are haunting and interesting, making the final moments all the more impressionable.

George Romero's zombie-classic that started it all and sat the rules for allmost every zombie-movie that followed, is not only filled with good suspense and scares but also with some great social commentary on the 60's and our society.

This is an historic movie. As far as I know George Romero was the first to introduce the zombies to the cinema. And it was a start of something special.

Very good film, terrific end, good horror.
