If you read critic reviews and commentary on Night of the Living Dead, you could be left with a sense of wonderment on what the movie is really about. It’s almost like poetry in that people interpret it’s meaning and purpose in ways that the original creators may not have intended. No matter what you believe it’s about in the end, Night of the Living Dead is a pivotal part of horror history.
I suggest the original black and white version. Something about the black and white makes it creepier and the color version ruins some of the “filling in” your imagination does of it’s own accord.
