When a gruesome plague leads to an uprising of the dead, seven people in a remote wooden farmhouse fight for their lives against ever-mounting numbers of ghouls. No one can say why the dead are returning, but as terror takes over and panic and paranoia set in, one by one, the living are being whittled down. Who will survive to see sunrise? Made for little more than $100,000, George A. Romero's independently made, low-budget debut is a milestone of radical 1960s horror.
