QRE Halloween Horror Movie Countdown – Day 2

by Irky on October 30, 2012

Here’s our recommendation for Day 2:

Night of the Living Dead‘Night of the Living Dead’

They’re coming to get you, Barbara!

There’s no way we could get through this list without including the first of the ‘modern’ zombie films. (For a look back at other Hollywood zombies, check out Jake’s article here.)

The zombies in this movie are mostly classic shamblers – slow and clumsy, you could probably walk through them at a relatively brisk pace and be just fine. However, they’re not all shamblers – some are runners. Some are crawlers. Some pick up things and break them. Some try to smash the windows of houses with rocks. And to us, that’s one of the scariest parts – you never know which kind you’re going to run into.

Considered very, very tame by today’s standards, one of our staff started watching this movie with his 8 year old daughter recently. She stopped halfway though – not because she was scared, but because she was bored. Pfft – kids. They just don’t appreciate the classics.
