The Question: What cult classic is also considered the birth of the modern zombie film?
The Walking Dead
Night of the Living Dead
Shot outside Pittsburgh with a very small budget, 1968’s “Night of the Living Dead” is considered the origin of the modern zombie film. George A. Romero co-wrote and directed this black-and-white masterpiece, which formed the foundation of later Romero classics such as “Dawn of the Dead” and “Day of the Dead.” Romero combined zombie horror with the horrors of modern society to create an instant cult classic that inspires dread to this day.
The correct answer is Night of the Living Dead.
