#654: Night Of The Living Dead (1968) / Top 5 Horror Debuts

In 1968, a Pittsburgh-based TV commercial director scrounged together a hundred thousand bucks and shot a quickie horror film that went on to gross $30 million over nearly five decades of re-releases. It also more or less invented a new movie monster. Yes, there were zombie movies before George Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, but - important distinction - Romero’s were the first to feast on human flesh. This Halloween weekend, Adam and Josh revisit "Dead" for a Sacred Cow review and share their Top 5 Horror Debuts. Plus, listeners name the best horror film of the last decade.
