10 best zombie movies ever
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
George Romero invented the modern zombie with this micro-budget chiller, in which armies of flesh-eating 'ghouls' rise from the dead. It laid down the 'rules' of the zombie film, from the shuffling, cannibal undead that could only be killed by "removing the head or destroying the brain" to the social satire underpinning the genre – the film was inspired by the social unrest caused by the Vietnam War. Horror cinema would never be the same again.
