  1. There are many things to analyze about this movie. As you can see, in the year 1968 racial segregation was a strong issue. In that year, Luther King was killed. The fact that a black man gets in charge is political position of the director. Romero changed how we perceive zombies nowadays, who by the way have certainly evolve with time. I love the movie, and the remake is excellent.

  2. In case of zombie apocalypse, I would of not turned the lights on. I would go to the attic and hide Grab a ladder and go up the hatch, and then kick the ladder down. Then just be quiet in the darkness. If you had a gun, only shoot if you need to.

    I am armed, I also have packed a tasty variety of 10 year old military surplus MRE's. And some machine NASA made I was testing out that is supposed to recycle your pee. They ran out of money, so instead of hiring some expensive professional scientists for the research. They hired some test subjects like me for a fraction of the cost, to drink my own piss. Who wants to join me in the attic for the upcoming apocalypse… lol
