There have been a few movies that my friend and i have watched together that had her holding my arms or pinching my legs. Two films even had her digging her nails into my arms and i still have the marks to prove it. HOWEVER!!!!! This film gave her the incentive to add a another mark on my arm with her teeth. The scene that's responsible for it, including my friend, is when this woman see her husband or boyfriend and he bites her. Not once but twice!!! That scene looked real to my friend and her reaction was to do the same and scream at the same time. OUCH!!!!! I will admit the special effects for that scene had me clap my hands while watching it on my HOMETHEATER!!!!!!! This movie has more all around sound, but i did like the music for a scary effect. I first saw this movie on 42nd street many years ago and i'm proud to add it to my collection. When i ask my friend if she liked it she said hell yeah!! I asked if she wanted to see it again? "Oh,hell no!" "It's gross" With that, i'm giving this horror classic 5 stars!!!! An excellent biting scene, cool scary music in some scenes, and an ok story. A large pizza with everything on it. and red kool ade.

I love this movie! I first saw it when I was like in the 3rd or 4th grade. I saw it with my son the other day and I said "When this came out, it was state of the art!" Watching this now, one must keep that in mind. I am a huge fan of the zombie genre. The story was good, but the SFX are lacking by today's standards. Romero's first, "Night of the Living Dead" was much better.

Laughably bad SFX, and a few things that were beyond the suspension of disbelief such as someone learning to fly a helicopter in only a few lessons. That said, I can see where the video game "Left 4 Dead" got 99% of its imagery. There's a couple of points in the story that an actual plot reared its head, but thankfully the people involved didn't bring them to fruition. The Lord only knows what they would have done with them.

The zombies look like someone spraypainted a bunch of people purple and the so-called "Ground-breaking gore effects" are laughable. the acting is ,meh, and the writing stale. Soundtrack Guarunteed to get on your nerves.

Typical zombie apocolypse survival movie. In this one, our survivors shack up in a mall. Like every other zombie movie, their safety does not last forever.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: I saw this when it first came out and I was in the third or fourth grade. It scared me. Now? My son (he is 14) said "This is a good movie, but the graphics are ghetto". The idea is frightening, but the visualization in this case is not any longer.
