The first time the Zombies appeared was in ¨White Zombie(1932)¨. From then on Zombies remained a firm staple of terror B-genre , bringing the dead back to life was a popular pastime in the 30s and 40s . The early zombies were basically genteel beings and generally likable and agreeable types . Romero created in Pittsburg his own production company Image Ten Productions with his friends, John Russo among them and they each contributed 10.000 dollars and formed the budget for his first ¨Night of living dead¨ movie which made Romero world famous and he gave birth to the modern Zombie genre . Tom Savini cast an African-American Tony Todd , Duane Jones-alike , along with usual horror secondaries as Bill Moseley and Tom Towles ; furthermore ,Billy Cardille appears as a reporter in both the 1968 version and the remake . And acting debut for Katie Finneran and Heather Mazur . Claustrophobic picture , giving interesting consideration to the violence executed by the zombies and , along with the original ¨Night of the living dead, has had a lasting importance . It was one of the first successful independent terror productions influencing and inspiring countless imitations, copies and rip-offs . The scene at the end of the film, where several zombies are lynched from a tree and shot at was in fact scripted in the original 1968 film, but was cut because of the racial tensions gripping the country at the time , the scene pays homage to the cut. As is tradition with most zombie films, the word 'zombie' is never once used in this movie to describe the Living Dead . The motion picture was well directed by Tom Savini , though Peter Hyams was asked to direct, but turned it down to make ¨Margin narrow¨. However , Tom Savini's originally wanted to start the film in black-and-white, then slowly add color. Other equally celebrated sequels are the followings : ¨Dawn of the dead (78)¨ where the zombies attack a shopping mall ,¨Day of the dead dead(85)¨ and scientific experimenting on zombies and ¨Land of dead (2005)¨ with high budget played by Simon Baker, Asia Argento and Dennis Hooper .
