In 1968 a young college drop-out named George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day.
Birth of the Living Dead shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad-men, housewives and a roller-rink owner to shoot a revolutionary guerrilla style film that went on to become a cinematic landmark, offering a profound insight into how our society worked in a singular time in American history.

If you re a fan of zombies in any way, shape, or form, you need to watch this movie one of the most extensive, informative, and even entertaining looks at Night of the Living Dead. Very highly recommended. --Brian M. Sammons, Hell Notes
Fascinating, hugely entertaining documentary chronicles the making of the classic horror film while also tracing its lineage, its colossal influence on the zombie sub-genre, and analysis of its cultural import. And kudos to director Rob Kuhns; he s crafted a spot-on, ingratiating, informative film that should appeal to the died-in-the-wool horror fanatic as well as the interested newbie. This is easily one of my favorites of 2013 so far. --Dean Galanis, Forces of Geek
Mesmerizing...I finally understand why I was not only scared out of my wits, but was simultaneously watching a cinematic breakthrough and cultural phenomenon. Birth of the Living Dead is immensely watchable and abundantly enlightening, with one ah-hah moment after another. --Bill Moyers
