I find Zombie movies to be the most interesting genre of horror films. Mostly because I find that directors and producers find great ways to develop a 'new' type of Zombie. The Zombie is typically characterized as having been affected by some disease in which they become the un-dead and wish to feed on or kill the living. I appreciate when Zombie films don't follow that typical mode, I.E. fast zombies. These are much more 'realistic' and interesting in a horror film because let's be serious...no slow walking dead thing should be able to out-run or catch up to my living self. This is perhaps why I enjoyed the opening sequence to "Night of the Living Dead" so much. I half expected to see (since this was one of the very first zombie films produced) the slowest zombie ever, but the one's we have seen thus far have been particularly speedy. Making things a lot more interesting for Barbara who can't run straight or fast enough (literally) to save her life.
Speaking of Barbara...I'm interested to see what happens with her character as the film develops because at the current moment I find her intolerable. Even for the time in which this movie was developed, I find it hard to believe that any woman (person or child for that matter) would walk around in such a daze and so helpless as she did when the one man reached the house. Hopefully she has some redeeming qualities and won't rely on this man to save her for the entirety of the film. *End Rant*
