Movie Monday NOTLD

Most of you know by know that I am horror movie queen. LOL Give me a scary, creepy. vampire, zombie, ghost, haunted house, fight the evil movie and I am in. In 1968, "The night of the living dead" appeared at the drive ins. Some of you remember drive ins. It was the best! Done in black and white with eerie screen shots that made this B movie so creepy. Director/Writer George A Ramero was 28 years old when he directed the movie. It was somewhat of a hit, at 30 million with US and International box office. It was so popular a game was made for those who just couldn't get enough.



In 1990 a remake of Night of the living dead came out and this is my favorite version of the film. The Hollywood Reporter has a great post with video on some of the best zombie movies. Click here to check it out. 
The 1990 film is in color and has Tony Todd and Patricia Tallman as the stars with director Tom Savini
You can watch this on AMC



However, this movie had trouble on the set. Savini said, "It was the nightmare of his life." 
You can read about it  From Wikipedia
Interesting side note.
The 1990 version is banned because of the usual blood and gore Deeming it an unhealthy influence on German youth.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.

I love drive ins! I remember going to one on a October night, close to Halloween, a scary one, my boyfriend who was to become my husband went to the confession booth for popcorn and when returning scared the heck out of me, creeping up on the car and smearing his face against the window. He still teases me to this day, he never saw anyone lock the car doors so fast lol, thanks for the reminders! 👍❤️

I've heard of the movie and I've been to a drive-in, too. But I will pass on that gore and guts type movie. It just isn't for me, thanks.
