EP. 126 — Night Of The Living Dead

Amy & Paul tear into 1968’s seminal zombie horror Night Of The Living Dead! They learn about director George Romero’s history making political advertisements, praise the way Romero makes you care about the characters he’s killing off, and analyze how casting a black lead actor in Duane Jones changed the tenor and meaning of the film. Plus: Weighing in on the eternal question, can zombies run?

This is the third episode of our “Unghouled” horror miniseries; next week’s film is Night Of The Living Dead!
