"Night of the Living Dead" is one of the main works of director George A. Romero, who is known as the "father of zombies" due to his work in this film and other films in the "Dead" franchise. The film was shot on a limited budget, but manages to create a mood of tension and fear through its effective soundtrack and visual effects.

The film's story follows a group of characters, including Barbara and Johnny, who take refuge on a farm while the nearby town is ravaged by zombies. They have to fight for survival as they try to find a way to escape the surrounded place. As the situation escalates, they find themselves dealing with internal conflicts and questioning the nature of humanity and the condition of human beings.

The film was also notable for its depiction of race and class. The cast stars a black actor, which was unusual at the time, and the film tackles issues of dysfunction and inequality in a socially subjective way.
