...I mean early 80s or prior. No video-game or TV adaptations, and no mall-cineplex-filler.

Well, I dislike watching stuff at the computer and can't be fucked to burn torrented DVD's to watch from my DVD player. I also can't afford to order a ton of videos/DVD's, and I don't like going out in public in general. I basically have to rely on what I find on TV, in second hand shops, or what friends/relatives show me when it comes to discovering films of any genre.

Point is, I don't have a vast knowledge of film from any genre, so I'm not working from a huge library of choices when I say my favorite cult classic/non-"mall-cineplex-filler" (whatever that means) horror film is probably Night of the Living Dead. It's one of the earliest horror films I can remember watching as a kid. It was one of the few, perhaps only, horror films my parents owned instead of renting, and it made a strong impression on me back then.

As apathetic about or uninvolved with film fandom as I am, I even bought a NOTLD poster from Suncoast back when we still had one here... Too bad everything there was so expensive, especially on my unemployed teenager's salary.

Good choice! I think that was one of the first horror-films to challenge racism.

Quite possibly, at least in terms of "mainstream" (meaning not abysmally obscure) cinema. The social/political subtext in Romero's films is definitely one of the things I like about them. That said, I also appreciate that it's relatively subtle and indirect. In other words, it doesn't come across as preachy or contrived.

 Yes, and he manages to cover many social-issues even via using many standard concepts. Have you ever seen MARTIN?

It was good, but the novel was quite a bit better.
