Birth of the Living Dead

George A. Romero invented shambling, guts-gobbling zombies as we know them with his 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead. I’m sure your nightmares thank him. Documentarian Rob Kuhns interviews the living-dead legend and chronicles how Romero's film came to be—including stories about Romero gathering pals from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood as his production crew, and getting advertisers from his commercial film studio to play zombies at an abandoned farmhouse. It’s a fascinating film that not only covers Night of the Living Dead’s evergreen themes like race, war, and zombie apocalypses, but also provides a twinkly eyed portrait of Romero.
