When one thinks of the modern zombie film, one has to pay respect to its father, George Romero. It was his low budget, independently produced Night Of The Living Dead (1968), which laid the template for every film that was to follow. Previously, cinematic zombies would be those who fell under the spell of a voodoo practicing witch doctor. But from this film on they would be the animated dead, unstoppable in their single-minded quest to feed on the flesh of the living. Romero would be sincerely flattered by a host of immitators, but his original still retains a powerful hold on audiences today. Romero himself would further explore his zombie epidemic spreading across the globe through a series of sequels which also manage to work in a subtext of social satire.
