by Vesa Lehtimäki | ALTERNATIVE FRAME: Three Kings: "I had an idea of a name and story to this one but I can't remember it anymore. Something about Darth Vader using his lightsaber as a flashlight because he couldn't see anything with his helmet in the darkness of a night falling on Hoth."
The original title of the Romero Classic was "Night of the Flesh-Eaters". It was changed in post-production by the distribution company who copyrighted the title of "Night of the Living Dead". Romero made little to nothing from the film. His vision never meant to trigger a zombie genre.
