The most important, innovative and influential film in the genre.
This is the most innovative, and arguably the best film in the genre. A perfect mix of camp, wit, style and straight up horror.This was the first movie to have zombies crave brains, and to have them be cunning and fast. Not to mention some of the most amazing and memorable scenes ever committed to celluloid. Every modern zombie film owes a tip of the hat to this cinematic masterpiece that single-handedly changed the genre. It is probably the most important and influential zombie flick of all time. I cannot believe this gem is so overlooked.
If you have not seen this film do yourself a huge favour and watch it asap.
