One of the great all-time movie classics which opened a new era in horror films and shed light on a new sub-genre, that of zombies, which seems to gain in popularity every year. Radiation from a satellite brings the dead back to life and they start to rise from their graves. It all starts in a cemetery, where two siblings are attacked by one of the revived. She dies and he flees to a farmhouse, where he meets other people in the same situation. They must defend themselves from attack by a horde of zombies. Master Romero began his career with this title which enjoyed unexpected success in its day, going on to make another five versions of it in his filmography.
