I can't think of a better way to kick off Zombie Month around here, than talking about this classic film. Here's a way to watch the entire film, just in case you have never seen this one before:
George Romero seems to be known as the father of the modern zombie movies - which is ironic since he didn't set out to make a "zombie" movie. It's interesting to look back at the zombies shown in this film - in the beginning, they seem to have some speed in their legs - they certainly give Barbara a run for her money when she's in the car - and then the rest of the film, they are slow as molasses.
I'll take a lumbering zombie over a rage zombie any day - how about you? Do you remember the first time you saw a zombie movie?
