366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 4

The Date: October 4

The Movie: Night of the Living Dead (1968)

What Is It?: The beginning of a new age in zombie movies, and the finest serious film in the swarming-dead genre. The newsreel aesthetic lends this cheapy a powerful sense of realism, as does Duane Jones's performance and the finale, which hits as hard as a punch in the teeth.

Why Today?: On this day in 1957, actress Kyra Schon, who plays the sweet little girl who eats her mom, is born.
