Description

The true story of the scariest movie of all time.

George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is not only the quintessential zombie movie, it also invented the genre. Director Rob Kuhns goes behind the scenes to discover how Romero put together this groundbreaking film, interspersing clips of the movie and conversations with the actors, film historians, and Romero himself, who spins hilarious tales about how he went from working on Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood to creating one of the great horror films of all-time.

In 1967, Romero begged, borrowed, and assembled his cast from anyone who’d work for a free meal. Although Night of the Living Dead is often viewed as a metaphor for its turbulent times, Romero simply wanted to make the scariest film he possibly could. And he succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
