Night of the Living Dead (1968) George A. Romero – (Deconstructing…)

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Up to this point, the episodes of our Deconstructing… video series have each focused on one of the horror genre's all-time classics, and the newly released fourth episode is no different. In this one, we take a look at one of my personal favorites, the movie I have watched more times than any other. The film that created the "flesh-eating zombies" sub-genre: George A. Romero's 1968 feature debut, Night of the Living Dead (watch it HERE, buy it at THIS LINK).

In the video embedded above, we honor Romero while digging into the history of Night of the Living Dead and the impact it has had – and will continue to have – on horror. The video is packed with trivia, so give it a look!

Deconstructing… is a monthly web series in which 

we choose one of your favorite horror movies and take it apart piece by piece (lovingly, of course) to see what makes it a classic. Each episode examines the origins, legacy and mysteries behind our beloved genre's most iconic titles… but we play fast and loose with the rules, so expect the unexpected!

The show is Written, Edited, and Narrated by Gregory Burkart, Produced by John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
