A ragtag group of Pennsylvanians barricade themselves in an old farmhouse to remain safe from a bloodthirsty, flesh-eating breed of monsters who are ravaging the East Coast of the United States.
The word "zombie" is never used. The most common euphemism used to describe the living dead is "those things," mostly by Cooper. Other characters refer to the creatures as "ghouls" and "flesh eaters". However, the film codified many tropes about zombies that have been used in many movies since, including zombies eating human flesh and that zombies can only be killed by shooting them in the head.
They ought to make the day the time changes the first day of summer.
Barbara: Well it's eight o' clock and it's still light.
Johnny: A lot of god the extra daylight does us, you know we've still got a three hour drive back, we're not going to be home until after ...
When Barbra rounds the corner of the farmhouse while searching for an entrance, someone is visible side-stepping away from the alley and crouching behind some bushes and posts of a shed.
The credits play over still frames of the hunters dragging Ben out of the house with meat hooks. After the credits, there's a short scene of the hunters setting a pile of zombies on fire.
This film has also been available in the United States in an edited version running 90 minutes (cut from 96 minutes). Some video (and even some DVD) releases have used this edited version.
