This campy, yet classic Romero piece has remained a favourite among Zombie Aficionados for decades. Often emulated, but never duplicated, the father of the Zombie (yes, with a capital 'Z') culture, George A. Romero, inspired generations of horror filmmakers around the world. Even in death, he (ironically) lives on, vicariously through every Zombie movie and TV show we see today.
