I love the old Night of the Living Dead movie. I have to say that although it was in black and white, that movie creeps me out more then any other. There is just something about it that makes my skin crawl.
"They're coming to get you Barbra." That line is probably the one that haunts my dreams more then any other.
Mr. Romero has done some great works. I loved when he teamed up with Stephen King and they created Creepshow. That was amazinly awesome, and corny funny at the same time. He is a true legend in the film world. But nothing will ever compare to the original Night of the Living Dead.
In my opinion, Romero MADE the zombie. All these newer zombie movies, like 28 Days Later, would be nowhere if Romero had not started it all.
