While White Zombie is the grandpappy of zombie movies, George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead is recognized as a  key part of the foundation of modern pop-culture zombiism.  "Romero zombies," slow moving, ravenous, pack-mentality beasts are seen as the classic undead terror.

Night of the Living Dead is the only one of Romero's zombie films that is in the public domain.  You can watch/download it via the Internet Archive.
This Zomtober, the Rapid City Public Library is going to showcase this film for our Zombie Movie Night.  This is our first year doing so, but we're expecting a great response - who doesn't love a classic horror movie right before the grandest of Zomtober-end festivities?
