Chris' Film Club: Night Of The Living Dead

The theme for this weeks Film Club are films that are known within the Indie genre, talking about films from the 60s right up to 2014. A very diverse film genre that displays the talent and creativity of smaller studios through complex narrative and a range of genres. It's a genre that finalises that creators don't need to be a part of a big studio to produce a 'big' film!

To kick start the theme for this week, we take a look at the George A. Romero film that stimulated the revolution of zombie films, as a source of escapism for intrigued audience. A black and white classic that many consider to be the most memorable American independent zombie film, produced back in 1968.

The $114,000 film, stars Duane Jones and Judith O’Dea as strangers thrown together with other survivors in a house, defending themselves from hoards of the living dead. Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
