The Movie: 'Night of the Living Dead' (1968)

The Scene: At their mother's behest, siblings Johnny and Barbara are on their annual sojourn into the Pennsylvania countryside to plant flowers on their father's grave. They see some shambling form moving in the distance - a drunk perhaps, or just some cemetery caretaker. Johnny teases his sister, warning in a ghoulish voice that 'they' were coming to get Barbara. As Johnny plays upon Barbara's fears in the isolated and gloomy field, the stumbling man attacks them, killing Johnny. In a panicked frenzy, Barbara narrowly escapes the madman and makes her way to a lone farmhouse. There she, along with a handful of strangers, is forced to stave off the throngs of the undead.
