    Fuck me...

    Romero's night of the living dead wasn't merely a zombie film, but a reflection on our biases and shortcomings as a society. A visionary creator who initiated something great that will entertain and provoke thought for generations.

    Such a shame we can't double like because these boys(uwueueghegheugh!!!) were great. With Noah they chucked us a curve ball because he represented the future in this apocalyptic nightmare and they gave him an absolutely horrific death. The kind i would only watch again if i were to re-watch the whole damn show, which i might. If i have the time and mental fortitude.

    RIP Explosive WD cast. And RIP Romero....unless he rises again lol

    Such memes ahead lol

    Just make sure that he doesn't get re-animated and tries to eat our brains.

    Night of the Living Dead is not just a great horror film, it's one of the most important movies on all of cinema. He broke the mold by making movies genuinely scary again, and gave Hollywood the bird by filming entirely independent. This film gave birth to movie ratings because it was scaring the bejesus out of everyone. His name shall never die.

    But Return of the living dead is better than any Zombie movie Romero ever made

    Night of the Living Dead is still the GOAT zombie movie, imo.

    R.I.P., George.

    I never quite got this urge to act like a fucking jackass no matter what. No one gives a fuck about what you think is better. Like there is any fucking reason to bring this up in a death thread other than to be a worthless dickbag...that being said, yes, RotLD is better movie.....this is not a costume, it is a way of life.
