It’s a film that more than lives up its lofty reputation, combining social commentary that (sadly) remains bold to this day and some genuinely terrifying zombie thrills. One of the reasons it’s so scary is that it’s shot in black and white. This was chosen primarily for budgetary reasons (the film was shot for a mere $114,000), yet it gives it an indelibly timeless, stark and brutal quality.
So, it’s fascinating to see these color behind the scenes photos from the set, which give us an idea of what things might have looked like had it not been in black and white.
