George Romero's Night Of The Living Dead brought Zombie culture to the forefront of horror, and Dan O'Bannon helped keep it alive (or undead) by continuing on with Return Of The Living Dead. While the two films are only loosely connected, you can't deny the importance of their impact on the horror movie and Zombie scene.
Night Of The Living Dead (starts at 8:00). Filmed in 1968 NOTLD was ahead of it's time. Focusing on both Zombies and the horrors of the human mind, Romero added a whole new level of fear to the Undead with this, the first is a series of many classic Zombie films, that have delighted and horrified the world over.
Brief intermission with Q/A from Zombie expert and Zombease.com crew member.
Return Of The Living Dead (starts at 10:00). A flop upon its original release, despite an amazing soundtrack, re-invention of the undead, and great one-liners; Return Of The Living Dead was bound to become a cult classic, and that's exactly what it did. Now a favorite among Zombie lovers world-wide, ROTLD has earned its place among the greats.
