What is there even left to say about George Romero’s legendary film? 50 years later, Night of the Living Dead is still influencing the genre it started back in 1968—a movie that instrumental surely needs no introduction. Not only was there nothing like it when it released, but it was a massive achievement in low-budget filmmaking and Romero used it to shine a light on America’s cultural landscape.
And much like Romero’s classic, artist Sara Deck has created a terrific piece for the film that has a lot to say. Without even featuring the monsters that made the film famous, Deck still manages to evoke plenty of terror. It draws your eyes to Barbara, who has no where left to run, as swarm of the undead close in. It’s minimally striking and all the scarier because of it.
