And this is where it starts. We lost George A. Romero this year – the father of the zombie movie – and boy will he be missed. This is the seminal opening of the highly influential, game-changing and much copied Night of the Living Dead and it never stops being scary – siblings Barbra (Judith O’Dea) and Johnny (Russell Streiner) are on their annual visit to their father’s grave. A strange man appears. There were zombie films before but this is where the modern zombie flick truly begins.
