The Story Behind: Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Most horror fans have probably seen the classic zombie films by George A Romero that basically started a new subgenre in the horror genre and here is the story behind the movie that started it all, Night of the Living Dead.


I remember being 12 years old and reading about Night of the Living Dead in the TV-magazine. It would show 6 days (on a wednesday) from when I read it and I was so excited. I had butterflies for the entire week because I felt that I would witness something out of the ordinary. I counted down the days and then finally came the day when I sat down in front of the TV and watched this amazing zombie movie that blew my mind.


It was that day that my love for Romero began and I had to watch Dawn of the dead  (1978) and Day of the Dead (1985). I have probably watched  Dawn of the dead 30 times because it is my favorite in the series. Night of the Living Dead was also one of the movies that sparked my passion for creating my own horror films.
