There have been made many sequels of this movie, but the plot remained the same.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Night of the Living Dead is a low budget movie, and the plot follows a group of people who are hiding in a farmhouse in Pennsylvania from zombies. Meanwhile the world is trying to find out how are zombies created. Despite all the controversy about this movie, Night of the Living Dead is now considered as classic.
Psycho is probably the most influential horror movie by Alfred Hitchcock, based on Robert Bloch’s novel and famous for the shower scene. It’s about one young woman who steals money to help her boyfriend and encounters a psychotic young man who owns a motel and is dominated by his mother. The story includes sexuality, violence, insanity, stuffed corpses and disturbed transvestite murderer. Because of the controversy, Hitchcock was forced to make changes to the movie, most of them to the famous shower scene with Janet Leigh.
