Night of the Living Dead (1968) on the television and as such we see Johnny uttering those immortal words, “They’ve coming to get you Barbara!” The creature itself is hardly original, resembling a giant octopus. But the pace of the movie is brisk, the dialogue is witty, and the central performances are charismatic. I especially loved the movie’s first fifteen minutes, as it’s filled with much intrigue and menace, and actually suggests a different type of movie, than what it evolves into.
