We also praised Romero's zombies as being among the most influential monsters in movie history , citing the film's impact as follows: "Can you imagine a world without zombies? Without The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, Resident Evil, and Dead Rising? We didn't think so. George Romero's original Night of the Living Dead introduced zombies as we know them today: reanimated, mindless corpses driven by a thirst for human flesh. The impact of Romero Zombies, from low-budget filmmaking techniques to the monsters themselves, can't be understated."
