Duane Jones, Judith O'Dea, Karl Hardman / Digital / OV ENG / FR SUB
The dead come back to life, ravenous for human flesh. A group of survivors goes into an isolated farm where they must not only fight the never-ending attacks of the living-dead, but also the mounting tensions amongst themselves. Director George Romero gives us a satire brimming with social commentary, subverting the genre by taking the horror movie outside of the traditional gothic castle and dragging us deep into the heart of America. The cannibal zombie metaphor was a means of poking fun at consumer culture, conventional social codes and racial discrimination in what was to become one of the most influential cult films of the 60’s.
