Event Info

Night of the Living Dead is a 1968 American independent horror film written, directed, photographed and edited by George A. Romero. The story follows seven people who are trapped in a rural farmhouse in western Pennsylvania, which is besieged by a large and growing group of living dead monsters. The film has been regarded as a cult classic by film scholars and critics, despite being heavily criticized upon its release for its explicit gore. It eventually garnered critical acclaim and was selected in 1999 by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a film deemed culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.
