#AtoZChallenge Zombies

Night of the Living Dead


The first Zombie movie I ever saw, was the Night of the Living Dead and it scared the hell out of me. Totally a cult-classic even though it was a B-Movie. Popular with teens and young adults. It was completed on a $114,000 budget and it looked like it. Laugh if you want - it turned into a financial success - grossing 12 million, and 18 million internationally and to this day,  continues to make money.


1968 American independent horror film, directed by George A. Romero, starring Duane Jones and Judith O'Dea.

  2. I definitely have to see this film. When I am using cable on demand and sort the movies by critic or viewer score with those closest to 100 at the beginning, it is always early in the list. Visiting from

  3. So funny that you picked this. Yesterday in yoga class our instructor wanted us to walk the mat like zombies - it's a balance thing - and I said I wasn't sure what she meant. She asked if I had ever seen a zombie and I told her I watched the Night of the Living Dead. I mean, they really don't exist do they???

    Congrats on finishing the challenge. It was fun to read your posts.

  6. The first horror movie that scared me out of my wits was 'The Mummy', the black and white film from the 1930s. I was 6. Couldn't sleep all night. And even if I know that today I'd probably laugh at its naivity, I'm still very impressionable with mummies on screen and off.

    Hey, Dabby, congratulations of completing the challenge! Always a great fit.
    I really enjoyed your posts. history on a personal level, I love this ^_^

  7. This is still one of my favorite films. It's scary and they didn't need the big FX budget to make it so. Such a classic.

    Congratulations on a successful A to Z Challenge. Thank you for participating in 2017.

  8. When I was a child I was never allowed to watch scary movies because I would keep Mama up for many nights afterward. One summer, when I was about 13, a station ran an old or black and white scary movie each week. Me & a neighbor girl watched them all. I still enjoy a good scary movie, but I don't like gore.

    1. I never cared for the bloody gore type movies - just a good scary movie. I always enjoyed the old black and white Bela Lugosi vampire movies. They used to scare me, when I was out babysitting as a teen. Then I would be afraid.
