ABOUT THE FILM
Throw on your favorite costume and celebrate Halloween with the CMU IFF by watching Night of the Living Dead! The zombie flick that started the craze was filmed here in Pittsburgh by the "Father of the Zombie Film" himself, George A. Romero.
When the dead come back to life, a group of strangers barricade themselves in an abandoned farmhouse. As the horde of zombies grows larger and hungrier, the living must work with - or against - each other to survive.
