I covered the original Night of the Living Dead in one of my A to Z Blogging Challenge Bonus Posts, so I couldn’t very well feature it again. This left me with a bit of a conundrum. What do I post for N?? Then it hit me, I’ll just post Savini’s 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead. Perfect solution 🙂
In this remake of the original classic film, a group of people are trapped inside a farmhouse as legions of the walking dead try to get inside and use them for food.
My Rating: A
Interesting Fact: The scene where Barbara shoots a zombie in the chest and then finally in the head was not originally going to be in the film. We were supposed to see a hideous female zombie that Barbara saw as her mother. Everyone was supposed to tell her to shoot it. The mother would have looked at Barbara and asked “Where’s Johnny, Barbara?”, then turned back into the hideous female zombie, at which point Barbara would finally shoot.
Honourable Mentions for the letter N: Night of the Seagulls, Ninjas Vs. Zombies

If I hadn’t seen the original (and didn’t harbor my usual bias), I probably would have liked this one more. Great way to double-down on Night of the Living Dead!! 🙂
Double down is the only way to go!
I saw the 1990 remake when I was in college! Thought it was awesome…
…then I discovered the original.
I’m not usually one for zombies. But NotLD falls under the category of classic films for me.
Some films seem to transcend our normal likes and dislikes to become classics. NofLD certainly is a classic in my eyes 🙂 Thanks for the comment Jessica!
