4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Duane Jones, Judith O’Dea, Russell Streiner ‘They’re coming to get you!’ Seven people hole up in a country farmhouse while an army of flesh-eating zombies try to get in. The first in Romero’s cycle of ghoulish satires remains a touchstone of modern horror drama, and its essential power to chill remains undiminished despite scores of imitations and remakes. A new, Romero-approved 4K restoration from New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Janus Films, will be screened.
