Dir. George Romero (1968).
The scariest film ever made in America is also the quintessential movie of the late ‘60s. This low-budget indie—part E.C. horror comics, part cinema verité—provided a social metaphor as powerful as the one that Invasion of the Body Snatchers furnished for the first half of the 1950s.
