Night of the living dead (1968)

They're coming to get you...again! Maybe one of the most famous quotes in the history of horror cinema. The legendary film that redefined the horror genre from the incredible George Romero. Starting with Barbara and her brother visiting the grave of a friend of their mother. They have been attacked by a monster, a dead man who chase her after killing her brother. She founds a shelter at an abandoned house and after meeting Ben, they try to survive together and fight against the horde of the living dead. The story becomes more and more creepy and the horror is everywhere. They discover another family that was hiding in the cellar. The father, Mr. Cooper, argues with Ben soon and there is an internal confrontation between them, leading them to their limits. There is no escape and the enemy is going to eat them alive. With a few screens of violence and a low budget, Romero did the unexpected. He directed in the depth of emotions and built a powerful situation where the battle between life and death was so realistic that still gives you the creeps. Recommended!
