Both the aesthetics and the social commentary put forth in Night of the Living Dead were thrillingly advanced a decade later by writer/director Romero, setting the standard for zombie movies with brains—in more ways than one. Pennsylvania filming locales included, unforgettably, the Monroeville shopping mall, where four survivors hole up against hordes of the undead—until, as ever, fellow man poses the greater threat.
