The Classic Horror Cast
Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Before "walkers," "undead," or even "zombies," there were the ghouls of George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead. On the surface, the 1968 film is just an independent horror picture with uneven pacing and more realisitic gore, but in the 45 years since its release, it's become everything from a political and social allegory to the beginning of a cultural phenomenon. This month (Happy New Year!), Erik, Sean, and Kyle sink their teeth into a modern horror icon.

On this month's Classic Horror Cast, Sean, Erik, and Kyle discuss Alfred Hitchock's 1960 masterpiece of suspense, Psycho, which was one of the precursors to the modern slasher movie. It also happened to be one of several classic horror films to be at least partially based on the life of famous murderer/mother lover Ed Gein. Look him up; he's gross.
