Night Of The Living Dead

Hah, that is an obscure thing to commemorate! Outstanding film on multiple levels. I remember watching in disbelief that they had an average black guy as the lead character, in 1968!?

Awesome post Bruce. I noticed that too, and in 1968 there were civil rights riots going on in the USA. I was an 8 year old kid living in Durham, North Carolina at the time and a large part of the downtown area was on fire due to the rioting. George Romero was ahead of his time when he made this movie and that's why it was selected to be in our National Library of Congress.

Personally prefer Dawn but great film nonetheless... wow 50 years!
Such an amazing film, THAT ending too.

Still one of my genre favourites. Cheers for sharing the anniversary!
