The classic zombie thriller that started it all - made new with a hilarious, rapid-fire commentary by Mike Nelson and the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Yes, the dead are walking, and hunger for human flesh. A group of panicked survivors hole up in a deserted farmhouse while an army of zombies encircles them - can they last the night?! Terror turns to laughter as Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett live through The Night of the Living Dead!

The fun starts early, with jibes not only aimed at the actors onscreen, but 'technical' aspects of a shot (which serves the dual purpose of making fun of commentary tracks in general). It continues throughout the film, at various levels of inspiration, from silly sex jokes to esoteric references to wry, shrewd observations. And since the film was shot around Pittsburgh, there are several references to the Pittsburgh Steelers, just to keep us on our toes.
I'm sure my neighbors must think I'm crazy, because I sat on the sofa laughing hysterically for at least half of the 96 minute runtime. Hilarious. I mean that.
Also, as a 'bonus,' you can watch the film without the RiffTrax commentary. For someone as into cult film as I am, this really is a true bonus...I can watch it for the original zombie suspense, or for big, big yuks.
