The Night of the Living Dead Film Talk: Sezín Koehler, Film Critic
_The Night of the Living Dead_ follows Barbra and her brother Johnny after they are attacked by a strange, lurching man while visiting their uncle's grave and Johnny is killed, Barbra manages to escape to a nearby farmhouse as more of these murderous flesh-eating people come out of the woods. Barbra is quickly met by Ben, a Black man who quickly takes charge of the situation and everyone's safety as best he can all the while they continue to be violently set upon by hordes of the undead. With an unforgettable and heartbreaking conclusion, George Romero's seminal 1968 horror film The Night of the Living dead isn't only a terrifying story of its own right, its social commentary on race in America has continued to remain relevant in the decades since.
