#70 on Glenn's Top 100 Movie List
This movie is really great because even though the premise is motherfucking zombies, the real meat of the movie is human interaction leading to the disintegration of society. Then that was the real meat of every George Romero movie for the next 40 years. This movie is kind of tame now, but I can't imagine how freaked out people must have been in 1968 to see zombies eating human intestines. Now I think they have a segment on Sesame Street where zombies show the letters of the alphabet by using intestines. Or maybe it's Elmo who does that.
