Night Of The Living Dead

Night Of The Living Dead

Night Of The Living Dead Description
George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is a low-budget, homegrown classic that had great difficulty finding a distributor at the time of its 1968 release, and has since become one of the most influential horror films of all time. Aside from its visceral impact years before realistic gore became the fashion, the film is also important for its portrayal of a black man as the protagonist during a time when race relations were an extremely sensitive issue in the United States. Seven people secluded in a Pennsylvania farmhouse face relentless attacks by reanimated corpses seeking to eat their flesh. The group, which includes a married couple and their daughter, a pair of young lovers, and an African-American man, try to keep their sanity as the living dead try endlessly to enter the house. The only way to stop the zombies is to burn them or issue a severe blow to their heads. Radio news reports tell of the plague taking over the eastern United States, while the ever-decreasing band of survivors rapidly loses ground in the battle to both keep peace with one another and stay alive.

"Beat 'em or burn 'em. They go up pretty easy." - Zombie hunter on television news coverage

"They're coming to get you, Barbara!" - Johnny (Russell Streiner) taunting Barbara (Judith O' Dea) in the cemetery, just before he is attacked by a zombie

Theatrical release: October 1, 1968. Filmed in 1964 in the countryside around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1999. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD was director George Romero's first feature film. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD produced two sequels, DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) and DAY OF THE DEAD (1985); one remake, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990); and countless imitations. William Hinzman, who appeared as the Cemetery Zombie at the beginning of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, also served as cinematographer on Romero's THE CRAZIES. The film was made for $114,000.

Dawn Of The Dead Description
Picking up where NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD left off, and still offering no explanation of why the dead are walking the earth, DAWN plunges headlong into one of the most violent and original horror films ever made. After securing an apartment building overcome with flesh-eating zombies, two Philadelphia area SWAT team members, Peter (Ken Foree) and Roger (Scott Reiniger), flee to a television station, where they escape in the stationís helicopter with Francine (Gaylen Ross) and Stephen (David Emge), two station employees. Seeking refuge from the zombies and the ensuing hysteria, they land on top of a Pittsburgh area shopping mall, despite the fact that the undead seem to be flocking there. What begins as a stop for supplies becomes a longer stay as the four become embroiled in a futile war within the mall to keep their flesh to themselves and remain alive.

The filmís relentlessly disturbing and innovative gore effects are one reason to see DAWN OF THE DEAD, but those who can stomach the endless barrage of blood and gnarled zombie faces will be rewarded, and possibly surprised, by what the film says about human nature and life within a consumer-based culture. Any aficionado of horror is likely to place the film high on their list of revered cinema.

"Some kind of instinct. Memory of what used to be. This was an important place in their lives."--Steve Andrews (David Emge) on why the zombies are flocking to the mall

Theatrical release: April 10, 1979 (USA).

DAWN OF THE DEAD went into production in November 1977, with a budget of $1.5 million.

The mall sequences were filmed at the Monroeville Mall in Monroeville, PA. The tenement scenes were shot in Pittsburgh's Hill District, the area upon which the TV series HILL STREET BLUES was based.

Several versions of the film exist, as a result of the censorship policies of different countries.

The editing of the 121-minute Italian version was supervised by co-producer Dario Argento.

Director George Romero makes a cameo appearance in the television station at the beginning of the film.

Gore maestro Tom Savini appears as the leader of a biker gang who is eviscerated by zombies in the shopping mall.

Most of the 143 storeowners in the mall allowed their stores to be photographed in the film.

Director George Romero's tongue-in-cheek sequel to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is so grotesque that it achieves a kind of comic bliss. In the modern cathedral of materialism, a shopping mall, flesh-eating zombies browse for more victims. Four horrified survivors fend off the gruesome shoppers as the mall fills with the once-living.

"...DAWN pummels the viewer with a series of ever-more-grisly events....Romero's strong suit is pacing and technical fluidity. His film has a keen visual sense that tersely extracts the maximum from all the bloodletting..."

Day Of The Dead

Day Of The Dead

Day Of The Dead Description
The third chapter in the saga that director George Romero started in 1968 with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD moves the story further along the timeline of the zombie apocalypse to a time when survivors are few and far between. At an underground Florida research station, Dr. Logan (Richard Liberty) conducts grotesque experiments on captured zombies to search for a way that the living and the living dead can cohabitate. Begrudgingly sharing the facility with the doctor is military man Rhodes (Joe Pilato) and his underlings. Scientist Sarah (Lori Cardille) and her fellow survivors seek refuge at the compound just in time to see a clash between Logan and Rhodes reach a critical turning point.

DAY OF THE DEAD stands as the most controversial film in the series. While some feel that its confined, talky nature prevents it from achieving the constant white-knuckle thrills of the previous two films, others admire its strides toward figuring out what drives the zombies. Regardless, the third act features the most extreme and well-executed special effects in the series, with several gory sequences that will leave an undeniable impression on those who witness them.

DAY OF THE DEAD, part three of George Romero's zombie trilogy, has the putrid man-eating creatures out in full-force and taking over the world, while a group of surviving soldiers and scientists bicker in a military bunker.

"...Affords [Romero] the opportunity for intermittent philosophy and satire, without compromising his reputation as the grisliest guy around..."

The original script written by George Romero concerned an actual trained army of zombies being commanded by an insane Florida tyrant, but budget restrictions made it unfilmable.

The members of the rock band NRBQ appear in the film as zombies.
