A space probe returning to Earth introduces into our atmosphere a form of radiation which affects dead bodies, bringing them to life. Soon the countryside is crowded with armies of walking dead. Untainted humans seek refuge in a farmhouse – and the horror is unrelenting as the zombies attack, often munching on human flesh. A classic that built one of the strongest reputation in the horror genre, and it set a trend […] due to its black-andwhite photography, its clever use of documentary techniques to lend verisimilitude, its imaginative editing and its horribly ironic ending.
