NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)
BULLETS IN THE WORLD
characters in Night of The Living Dead are stuck inside a barricaded
house, Ben, played by the late great Duane Jones tries to keep his
head while a zombie's arms reach between the boards covering up a
window. He fires 2 shots into its chest, with no effect, so he
empties the barrel right into the freak's head, finally stopping it.
The camera shot goes outside and you see a horde of zombies appear
from behind the trees. A naked lady, crazy looking old guys, and a
woman who eats bugs off a tree are shown. At this moment, the
situation turns hopeless. There's not enough bullets to take care of
all of them.
sets up the zombie mythology for nearly every other undead film from
that point forward. The feeling of hopelessness as the dead
outnumber the living. Ultimately the odds are so stacked against the
humans left in the world, that they can do little more than hide, and
wait for the inevitable.
