The Rio Theatre's Friday Late Night Movie series continues on October 11 with a screening of the late, great George Romero's landmark 1968 "zombie horror apocalypse" thriller NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. This film - an archetypical classic of not just the horror "genre," but any genre - is the cinematic blueprint for so many films of its ilk, following a group of people trying to survive an attack of bloodthirsty zombies while trapped in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse.

"George A. Romero's debut set the template for the zombie film, and features tight editing, realistic gore, and a sly political undercurrent." (Rotten Tomatoes)

"If [Romero's] original vision of the undead looks dulled by today's standards, his embedded political commentary on racism feels just as sharp." (Vulture)

"It's a virulent portrait of an America in flux and decay, from the flag billowing near the graveyard at the start to its disturbing depiction of a lynch-mob mentality. But Night also transcends its period through sheer intensity." (Total Film)

"The original and the best." (Empire Magazine)
