Original TFD Introduction by Dana Hersey. "Night of the Living Dead" opens with chaos - the brains of the recently deceased have become mysteriously reanimated, causing the dead to rise and feed on human flesh. While visiting their father's grave, Barbra (Judith O'Dea) and her brother Johnny (Russell Streiner) are attacked by a strange shuffling man. Barbra runs into a farmhouse where she encounters Ben (Duane Jones), and they must find a way to save themselves from the horde of zombies. George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" is hailed as one of the most influential horror films of all time - inspirational, thought provoking, and most importantly, terrifying! (BW)
