    You’re right James! This movie has BALLS, and it got me by the BALLS!

    I also saw the 1990 color remake directed by Tom Savini. It was made due to the legal issues that Romero had with his original film. It’s interesting to watch for curiousity’s sake!

    The remake was good. It grabbed me, and i watch it all the way through, but the original still kicks some donkey butt. Romeo better not die unexpectingly.

    This was the only movie of the classics I was able to see, as my school library had it, and being a zombie fan I checked it out. I was amazed at how the true conflict was amongst the survivors, less so with the zombies themselves, and I found it fascinating and worthy of contemplation. By the movie’s end I was so in touch with the lead character that I was angered by how the movie ended. A true masterpiece.

    i think my fav version of night of the living dead is the 1990 remake directed by tom savini it is directed by him right? anyway now theres anotherone coming out in 2010 and sense its 2010 now i’m guessing its all set to go but theres 2 remakes of it now the one in 1990 and the one in 2010 but if they make a remake of day of the dead and land of the dead there’ll be another line of confusion cause younger generations might pick the remake and think its the original bottom line no more remakes cause war of the worlds and the fly were all classics but they had to be remade heres what i think movie productions should do if people like the original version of a movie leave it alone cause movies should only be remade if its bad thats why good movies do not deserve to be remade cause it will only lead to more confusion and anger to fans such as myself and everybody else who love these films.

    When it comes to zombie films, Romero is KING. This film, and “Dawn of the Dead” are fucking incredible!!!

    James, did you ever watch the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead? Tom Savini directed and the first scene made me shit my pants. I thought it was ok but of course it will never be better than the original. I will “4 stars check it out”.

    I actually bought the colorized version of the original Night of the Living Dead from 1968. Its an interesting attempt and quite well done, but somehow i just cant help myself turning the colors off on my TV and watch it in black and white as it is supposed to be.

    For that matter, just go watch the original in b&w, or watch Tom Savini’s 1990 remake in color. For me personally, it still cant beat the greatness of Romero’s 1968 classic.

    Since this movie is in the public domain, you should make a feature length commentary!

    You should review Carnival of Souls (Herk Harvey, 1962). I think it inspired Romera quiet a bit, at least in regards to the tempo and cinematography. A shame that it is often overlooked.

    it took him 2 minutes to get to the plot ? My god!

    did you know there is a colorized version

    This is one of those films That I watch a lot. It’s a great film and It just has something that I like. i don’t know what it is. The sequels never really intrested me.

    Along with George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead this has always been my favorite zombie movie. He’s jus a dope director and seems lika great great guy. His directing is raw and has alotta heart which transcends through the screen. I dig how his movies always focus more on human nature in this situations while zombies are more the background. He created a whole genre what more can you say about him. I’m not surprised with the fucked up ending with this one. George Romero has always been into twisted ending. If u haven’t you should read about his original idea ending for Dawn of the Dead.

    Man, I really love and understand the pasion for horror. It’s amazing that every October Cinemassacre puts together a great films you’ve never heard of or the classics you’ve always loved.
    I’ve been watching these since 2008 and man I hope they never stop.
    Monster Madness must never end!
